“Do not touch my anointed ones, do no harm to my prophets…!”

To love and to defend the priesthood that God has given His Church is the guarantee and the certainty that we receive divine life by showing its due respect for such a great gift.

To exalt the priesthood and to have a merciful understanding attitude for those who receive this vocation is to be of one mind and one heart with Christ.

 

 

“All priests have received their own priesthood from Christ”

 

Jesus, Eternal Priest, the bleeding Sacrifice that is offered to the Father for the remission of sins and the self-gift of God Himself to mankind… “You are a Priest forever in the manner of Melchizedech.”

Jesus, the sole Priest, who by the union of His two natures, divine and human, can be the bridge between God and man, through which graces are bestowed upon mankind, and through which man becomes son of God and heir of His glory… […]

All priests have received their priesthood from Christ, their mission being the same one as the one of the Word Incarnate.

Priest of Christ, chosen portion, people set aside, anointed, predestined, consecrated for the service of God and the sanctification of mankind… […]

You have been consecrated to become one with the Sacred reality and to give us what is Sacred. You have been anointed by the Holy Spirit Himself so that your divine anointing, as precious ointment, may be poured out running down upon your robes, so that by soaking your whole being, you may become fully imbued with Divinity so that, springing forth through you torrentially, like a source of living waters, it may be poured out over all men, and they may hastily run after the scent of your perfumes.

This is the mission of the priest: to bring us the divine life that he, through his ministry and to the extent that he lives from Christ´s living and participates in the most intimate sentiments of His soul, he will proceed to communicate to us. […]

“Do not touch my anointed ones, do no harm to my prophets…!” Already in the Old Testament, in relation to that priesthood that was an image and figure of the priesthood of Christ, God asked for such respect and veneration that is due to the priest, what shall he request now in relation to the priesthood of the New Testament? […]

What would it become of humanity if priesthood did not exist, without the Mass, without this Holy Sacrifice through which it is being unceasingly offered to the One Trinity all honour and glory, or without the sacraments, without Jesus in the Eucharist in our tabernacles…!

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” “This is my Body.” “This is my Blood.” “Do this in memory of me…” “Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you forgive, are forgiven them…” Sublime powers that are only reserved for the Eternal Priest, Christ Jesus, which He, in His loving outpouring through the Holy Spirit, deposits in His Church. […]

What would it be of our souls without priests and, therefore, without the sacraments?

Let us look at the priest into his divine dignity and not into his human weakness, since the latter remains covered by the robes of his royal priesthood and by the union of this one with the Word. […]

And the priest of Christ is the “other Christ” on earth, and whenever we look at him, we have to always see the Lord’s anointed, Christ Himself; because, in doing so, we will also see the Father, and “we will be brought to perfection as one.” […]

If we knew what the priests mean to the heart of Christ, how great would our love and veneration be for them when speaking about them and how much would we respect them…! […]

Enlightened by the very Spirit of God a holy king said once that, if during the course of his life he were to find a priest who, due to human weakness was committing sin, he would take off his royal cloak and cover the priest with it, so that all who might see him could think that it was the king himself who was sinning, and so the reputation of the priest might remain intact.

Do we today Christians do as the saints of yesterday and like the ones of today, knowing that whatever we shall do to His priests, we do to Jesus…? Let us not be like those persons who, following the tricks of the devil, spread or unveil all the defects that, due to human weakness, these ones commit!

The Sacred Scriptures say that “the righteous falls seven times.” And if “the righteous falls seven times” and every mortal human being is prone to fall, who are we to judge anyone, and less even him who is the direct representative of the most High God Himself?

“Judge not, and you shall not be judged.” All that we say about the priest of Christ or the defects we spot in him turns to contempt and disrespect of our own religion and of our being Church, for the treasure of the Church is contained in the sacraments that the priest of Christ has to administer. And how many times in your life, instead of helping him with your prayer and sacrifice, you harm him because you allow yourself to be dragged by human judgements…!

The greatest triumph of the devil is when, due to his weakness, a priest falls by committing faults and sometimes sin. Be sure to guard their reputation and their souls partaking thus in the heart of God. Venerate or respect the priest of Christ, the one in your parish, in your town, your spiritual director. Do you know that prudence is the virtue that rules over the rest and that without this one the rest of virtues are thrown into disorder? […]

The priest of Christ is the other Christ on earth, the good shepherd and the good father who has to be ready to lay down his life for his sheep. And he will attain this more easily if you and I help him through our life of prayer. […]

God Himself tells us how we have to act with him: “Do not touch my anointed, do no harm to my prophets!”

If we knew the dignity of the priesthood of the New Testament through which the Word of Life Himself gives Himself to us in holy communion….

The priest is the father of souls, and only as such should he be looked at. […] […]

Because if through you any priest were harmed, such a severe accounting of it would be demanded from you on the day of judgement, that it would be very difficult for you to be saved from the hands of the Eternal Priest who chose them to be His continuators, and who loves them more than the pupil of His eyes.

Priest of Christ, I venerate you! because I see that upon you God has poured out all His delight since He has chosen you to be the continuation of His Word Incarnate, the herald of His divine life, the messenger of His Infinite Love. […]

         You cannot waste time, for all mankind is crying out to you: let us see what you do so that we may live the life of God that through His Church, by your means, He wanted to communicate to us! (4-9-61)

  

        How great is the priest of the New Testament, who, by the laying on of hands, since the day of his ordination, can say: “This is my Body,” “This is my Blood”; and actualize again the mystery of the Incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Christ, before God and among men!
(25-10-74)

  

    The Shepherds of Holy Mother Church are the holders of the fullness of priesthood, extenders of the Apostles and bearers of the fullness of their shepherding...! (25-10-74)
