Year for Priests

"The world looks to the priest, because it looks to Jesus! No one can see Christ; but everyone sees the priest,
and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur of the Lord!
Immense is the grandeur and dignity of the priest!"

- John Paul II, October 13, 1979
