P is for praising Priests

Please praise a priest promptly.

Why? Because quite a few of them are downright amazing, most of the rest are pretty good, and all are human beings. You have to remember that they are all human beings, and subject to human frailty and weakness.

The amazing ones….. These are the ones who juggle several churches while explaining in layman terms what the teachings of the Church are and why – and not getting mad when people continue to misunderstand the teachings. These are the ones who, while they are suffering from diseases, still manage to carry out their priestly duties – or even their Papal duties – thanks again, JP II!

And they do it all alone. These men care for entire congregations, yet, they have no family there at night. Priests are some of the strongest men I know.

So praise a priest today, please. Heck, give a hug, invite one to coffee – show your support. We’re talking about the man who brings the Eucharist into Mass, and gives us Reconciliation after all:)

(Just to clarify, I have absolutely no problem with the no women and no marriage Church policies. Priests are married to the Church, who is seen in a female personification. Check your Bible. In order to care for their congregation fully, anyway, if they were married, that would be doing spouse and Church a disservice; not enough energy to fully do both roles well. IMHO.).

  1. Awesome post! Most of the time, people just see priests preaching on Sunday’s but they don’t realize how much they go through (mentally, emotionally, and spiritually). Thanks for this!

    • My pleasure! The priests I have the honor to know work so hard for their people and for God. Glad you liked it!
