The spirit of compassion is the one means of touching the hearts of people. If we fight the devil in a spirit of pride and complacency we shall never vanquish him, for his pride and complacency are greater than ours; but if we work against him in humility we shall overcome him, for he has none of these weapons, and he is unable to defend himself against them

YEAR OF THE PRIEST
Only Christ is the true priest.
Yet through our baptism, we all share in His priesthood. There are 2 ways to participate in Christ’s priesthood:
• the common (or baptismal) priesthood of the faithful
• the ministerial priesthood of bishops and priests.
The ministerial priesthood is at the service of the common priesthood. Priests’ lives are literally spent in service to us. The Church states that the priest’s office “is in the strict sense of the term a service.” Priests exercise their service to us in 3 ways: by teaching, divine worship, & pastoral governance. The ministerial priesthood is one way Christ builds up and leads His Church ... thus every priest is a GIFT to us from God!
