That He might stay with us (Holy Thursday)

Institution of the Sacraments
of Holy Eucharist and Holy Orders
 Peter Paul Rubens, The Last Supper
Jesus Christ
instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist
so that He might stay with us
and be the Food of our soul;
that He might stay with us
and be our Companion.
St John Vianney
"Without the priest, the passion and death of our Lord
would be of no avail.  It is the priest who continues
the work of redemption here on earth... 
Leave a parish for twenty years without a priest and
they will end by worshipping the beasts there...
The priest is not a priest  for himself,
he is a priest for you."
"O, how great is the priest!...
If he realized what he is, he would die."
St John Vianney
Pray, pray, pray
for our priests!
They rely on our Prayers!
