On this Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, an inspiring and touching message!

“God will put you back, this time, in a beautiful mosaic, so that you can be life-giver for others”

 

On this Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, here is a luminous homily during priestly ordinations from Mgr Socrates Villegas, Archbishop of  Lingayen-Dagupan Pangasinan, in the Philippines:

“Are you weak enough to be a priest? Are you broken enough to be a priest? Are you afraid enough to be a priest?”

“You need to be weak in order to be priests, because sometimes, our own strengths become obstacles for the grace of God to be shown in our lives.  Are you weak enough so that the power of Christ can truly shine through you?

“We are not looking for super-men, we are not looking for super seminarians, we look for weak seminarians, in whom, the power and the strength of God can truly shine …”

“God knows you more than you know yourself and the beauty of it all is, even if God knows you inside and out, He still calls you – Come, my beloved, follow me.”
