"This book saved my priesthood."

Many of us ought to be upbraided for not having promoted vocations more to the priesthood and religious life.

We support our holy priests and promote more vocations.

The priest has a suppleness in the hands of his Master and it is a supernal vocation to be called to the holy priesthood.

So many worldly cares, but we look to our holy priests.

Read this book to understand priesthood:

The Priest Is Not His Own by Archbishop Fulton Sheen, c. 1963.

"The effectiveness of priests has little or nothing to do with their natural endowments. A Eucharistic priest will be a better instrument of the Lord among souls than a learned one who loves Him less. One of the promises made to priests who love the Sacred Heart is, 'I will give such priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts.'"

-F.J. Sheen
