Fulton Sheen on the Priesthood

Fulton Sheen, profile view.

Each priest is a man with a body of soft clay. To keep that treasure pure, he has to be stretched out on a cross of fire. Our fall can be greater than the fall of anyone else because of the height from which we tumble. Of all the bad men, bad religious men are the worst, because they were called to be closer to Christ.

–Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Pray for our priests!
