The Priest Holds the Key to the Treasures of Heaven

Hideously stolen from the OLGC bulletin, but I likes it! 🙂

Without the priest, the passion and death of our Lord would be of no avail. It is the priest that continues the work of redemption on earth…. What use would be a house filled with gold, were there no one to open its door? The priest holds the key to the treasures of heaven: it is he who opens the door: he is the steward of the good Lord; the administrator of His goods…. Leave a parish for twenty years without a priest, and they will end by worshipping the beasts there…. The priest is not a priest for himself; he is a priest for you. — St. John Vianney, Curé of Ars, Universal Patron of Priests

Please remember to pray in a particular way for our amazing priests today and throughout the Year of the Priest. May God bless them all!
