Thoughts from St Alphonsus for Every Day-July 8

PRIESTS are chosen by God to manage on earth all his concerns and interests. They are dispensers of divine graces and the com­panions of God. St Francis of Assisi used to say, "If I saw an angel and a priest, I would bend my knee first to the priest and then to the angel."
