One Minute Meditation
THOU ART A PRIEST FOREVER
To live in the midst of the world without desiring its pleasures;
To be a member of each family, yet belong to none.
To share all sufferings;
To penetrate all secrets;
To heal all wounds;
To go from men to God
to bring pardon, peace, and hope;
To have a heart of fire for charity
and a heart of bronze for chastity;
To teach and to pardon,
to console and bless always.
My God, what a life!
And it is yours, O priest of God!
