Like a Light Behind a Glass

Poster congratulating the new diocesan priests hangs in the narthex of St. Michael's Cathedral.

The Year of the Priest ends today (June 19th). 

The priest speaks two words, and Our Lord comes down from Heaven at his voice, and shuts Himself up in a little Host. God looks upon the altar. “That is My well-beloved Son, ” He says, “in whom I am well-pleased. ” He can refuse nothing to the merits of the offering of this Victim. If we had faith, we should see God hidden in the priest like a light behind a glass, like wine mingled with water.  
                             – St. Jean Vianney
