The Roman Catholic Priest- Another Christ

Saturday, May 27, 2006

Being a priest is being above all, it's being another Christ. Also the intimacy with The Christ. It is a special presence, a deeper love, a stronger desire to imitate Him, more graces. Being a priest is to live more in holiness; every action should be an effort in trying to acheive holiness. To be a priest is to fight (and perhaps kill) the old man; as St. Paul puts in Eph. 4: 22-24.

After the moment of priestly consecration, the seminarian is no longer the same. He is now a priest forever. In him comes a strength that was never there before… The priesthood marks the soul, changes our being, makes us consecrated to God for all eternity.
