St. Gregory: the priestly order


I say it with tears, I declare it with groans, that, when the priestly order has fallen inwardly, neither will it be able to stand outwardly for long.
Pope St. Gregory the Dialogist

I came across this quote on Good Guys Wear Black & thought it worth sharing. Wise words ... with implications for actions. For priests, it means persevering in prayer, study and holiness of life; for others, it means supporting their priests with their words, prayers, and actions, encouraging them in their calling. Neither should either forget the strengthening that comes from fasting and the sacraments.  

We are in this together ...
