Prayer: “You are a Priest Forever” by Lacordaire

To live in the midst of the world without wishing its pleasures; to be a member of each family, yet belonging to none; to share all sufferings; to penetrate all secrets; to heal all wounds; to go from the People of God to God and to offer God their prayers; to return from God to the People of God to bring pardon and hope; to have a heart on fire for charity and a heart of bronze for chastity; to teach and to pardon, console, and bless always – what a glorious life! And it is yours, O priest of Jesus Christ.
