Ordination

Gaudete Sunday 2020
This is indeed a Sunday to rejoice because it is the first High Mass of our newly ordained priest.  Father was ordained on the feast of Our Lady’s Presentation in a ceremony which showed the sacredness of this sacrament of Holy Orders.  Ordination imprints on the soul of the new priest a permanent mark called a character.  The character can never be removed and joins the ordinand to the Sacred Humanity of Jesus  in such a sublime way that the priest is another Christ.  Our Lord now acts directly through His priest to the degree that the words of consecration, This is My Body,  are spoken by Christ Himself through the instrumentality of the celebrant.  We have much to be thankful for today that another “alter Christus” will offer the most august sacrifice of the Holy Mass.
