Each time my priest enters the House of God to offer the Holy Sacrifice to Almighty Father, in remembrance of the pain, humiliation, and death of His only begotten Son: Jesus, we all bow our heads while he enters, showing respect to the one who said yes.
In my mind (while we bow when our priest approaches), I say: “How beautiful is the feet of those who brings peace”, this is part of a song that Neo Catholics sings while at mass sometimes, but it is actually His Holy word:
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7
Indeed He Reigns regardless of our bad deeds and unbelief, despite our wickedness He allow Humans to receive babies, allows the sun to shine, but it is also written that He will allow the sun to go dark on us for our perpetual unbelief and lack of charity.
Yet Holy wombs bring forth priests all over the world in order to open eyes to His sheep about how black darkness is out there…
True priests said yes, like our Blessed Mother said yes to God, Holy priests remain true, like John remain true, sometimes when the storm and fire came, they remain still and in the peacefulness of the wind, they hear God like Elijah did (1 Kings 19:12).
Forever a priest in the manner of Melchizedek, showing the ways of the Lord, straightening the paths and offering the perpetual sacrifice until He comes again.
When our Holy priest offers the prayers at the Tridentine mass, I feel like I’m touching his robe, like everybody else, ascending to Heaven with him, a true priest doesn’t mind that (spiritually speaking), from our seats we all touch his Holy vestments, like we are there when all happened, Jesus at the cross with Apostle John and Mary at His feet, the chains of sin are broken with true repentance and amendment.
God bless our Holy priests, those who have said yes, like our Blessed Mother said yes, those who Love our Lord and don’t mind giving their lives for their sheep…
Oh Jesus, have Mercy on the priests who have betrayed you like Judas did, priests who no longer believe in you, who are lukewarmth and who have become your enemies… have Mercy on their souls, not their intentions. Amen
