This seemed a fitting quote as we approach the end of the Year of the Priest:
Who then is the priest? He is the defender of truth, who stands with angels, gives glory with archangels, causes sacrifices to rise to the altar on high, shares Christ’s priesthood, refashions creation, restores it in God’s image, recreates it for the world on high and, even greater, is divinized and divinizes.
St. Gregory of Nazianzus, quoted in Catechsim of the Catholic Church 1589
