CHRIST THE HIGH PRIEST AND BRIDEGROOM: BUT HE ALLOWS US TO SHARE IN HIS LIFE THORUGH HIS GRACE AND SACRAMENTS

"Alter Christus" a very good video about the Priesthood in this year of the priest. As Father Z writes, it's not about "just call me Allan" type of priesthood, but goes to the core of Whom it is we represent, Jesus Christ the Savior of the World, the Head of the Church, of which we are the body. Jesus Christ the Bridegroom to whom we are the bride. Jesus Christ the exclusive High Priest that the ordained priest simply shares to a certain degree in a sacramental way and which the laity through Holy Baptism share to a lesser degree with their ordained priests called from their midst. Enjoy!

The Living Word in Hebrew Scripture carries the message well, "For the lips of the priest are to keep knowledge, and instruction is to be sought from his mouth, because he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts." ~ Malachi 2:7

Bravo Father, here's to our priests in this their year.

Excellent Father. I think as a special tribute for the Year of the Priest I shall take my family to Savannah in June to witness the ordinations at the Cathedral. It's something special I think all Catholics should witness.
