A Priest Forever

Thou Art a Priest Forever
J.B. Henri Lacordaire, OP

To live in the midst of the world with 
no desire for its pleasure...
To be a member of every family 
yet belonging to none...
To share all sufferings; to penetrate 
all secrets; to heal all wounds...
To daily go from men to God to 
offer Him their petitions...
To return from God to men 
to offer them His hope...
To have a heart of fire for charity 
and a heart of bronze for chastity...
To bless and be blest forever.
O God, what a life, and it is yours,
O Priest of Jesus Christ!
