Identity: A Priest - Lacordaire

To live in the midst of the world
without wishing its pleasures;

To be a member of each family,

yet belonging to none;

To share all suffering;

To penetrate all secrets;

To heal all wounds;


To go from men to God

and offer Him their prayers;

To return from God to men

To bring pardon and hope;

To have a heart of fire for Charity,

and a heart of bronze for Chastity

To teach and to pardon,

console and bless always.

My God, what a life;

and it is yours,

O priest of Jesus Christ.

  1. I'm sorry but I think the GBTB pic is just of men, some Renaissance guys are very pretty! its possible one of the figures is Our Lady but as there is no Halo I think not. :(
    but I love this post by the way :)
