Jesus gives meaning to the life of priests, Cardinal Arinze preaches

I found the following at Catholic News Agency

Rome, Italy, Mar 3, 2009 / 03:27 pm (CNA).- “It is Jesus who gives meaning to the life of the priest. Without Him, the priesthood is not understood, it makes no sense,” Cardinal Francis Arinze said this week as he led the members of the Roman Curia and Pope Benedict in their annual spiritual exercises at the Vatican.

The cardinal recalled that when Jesus is not present in the life of the priest, “I would say his vocation becomes a farce. In whose name does he celebrate, preach or act?”

Cardinal Arinze is such a good man! What a blessing to our world he is; thank you for sharing. And what a difference this counsel can make in the lives of our priests.
