THE PRIESTHOOD


 


THE FAITHFUL PRIEST

He regards with dove-like simplicity all the wealth that passes through his hands, whether it be the benefits bestowed by God upon men, or the offerings of men to God. His aim is twofold -- the good of the people and the glory of God. 

St. Bernard

 

 

THE WATCHFULNESS OF A PRIEST

The priest must be fortified as though by adamantine armor, must watch on every side with constant zeal and perpetual vigilance in respect to his life, lest any one should find some naked and unguarded spot, and inflict a fatal wound; for all who stand around are prepared to smite and cast him down -- not merely his enemies and foes, but many even of those who profess to be his friends. 

St. John Chrysostom
