“The world looks to the priest, because it looks to Jesus! No one can see Christ; but everyone sees the priest, and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur and dignity of the priest!” -Pope St. John Paul II
All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say:
‘I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
– The Rule of St. Benedict 53:1
