“…Priests are a miracle of God’s love for us. A man, through the sacrament of Ordination, becomes another Christ, with powers that go beyond human imagination…He takes a sinner, just like ourselves, and through a special anointing and the laying on of hands by a bishop, the man is impregnated, impenetrated, filled with Jesus Christ. Here is God descending into a sinner, and not only descending, but filling that man with Himself.”
