“Priesthood” by author, A.K. Frailey

The Writings of A.K. Frailey

collarConsidering the Priesthood, I feel I am on the outside looking in and amazed at the view nonetheless. I never gave the priesthood much thought until my brother joined the seminary. As I watched his life unfold these past 25+ years, I have become more aware of a mystery I can never fully understand. I’ve been to a few ordinations and I am always left rather breathless. There is real power and glory in the priesthood – also great trial and temptation. But what really sends me into the heavenly sphere is the realization of the ancient connection man has with God through the priesthood. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states (1548): “Christ is the source of all priesthood:the priest of the old law was a figure of Christ, and the priest of the new law acts in person of Christ.”
