Meditations of the Priesthood

“The power of the priest is the power of the divine person; for the transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world.” 
—St. Bernardine of Siena

“He made them, the vicars of his love.”
—St. Ambrose of Milan

“I also beseech in the Lord, all my brothers who are, or who shall be, or who desire to be priests of the Most High, that whenever they wish to celebrate Mass, they be pure, and offer with purity and reverence the true Sacrifice of the most holy Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ with a holy and perfect intention; not from any earthly motive, nor for the fear or love of any creature, as though desiring to please men; but let every will (according to the grace given) be directed solely to the most High God, and do you desire to please Him alone, for He alone works in this holy Sacrifice according to His good pleasure, as the Lord has Himself said: “Do this in remembrance of Me:” and he who does otherwise becomes a traitor like Judas. 
—St. Francis of Assisi
