A thought for priests

The Spiritual Moms Apostolate of the Diocese of Honolulu - a group of women who pray for priests for whom they spiritually adopt - has posted an excellent reflection for priests during these sacred days written by Saint Norbert:
Oh, Priest! who are you?

Not through yourself, since you are from nothing.

Not for yourself, since you are mediator of men,

Not to yourself, since you are the spouse of the Church,

Not yours, since you are servant of all,
Not you, since you are God.

Who are you then?
You are nothing, and all.
