“A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.” G.K. Chesterton
It is priestly ordination time* in the Roman Catholic Church.
The newly ordained are going against the stream, and, as such, are Men-alive.** They are beginning a great adventure, for they have chosen not only the narrow path, but the better part of that little path.
Let us remember our new priests in our prayers, especially to their Mother, Our Lady.
