As we celebrate the annual priests’ day, I would like to send each one of you on this blessed Holy Thursday, a very hearty congratulations and warmest wishes accompanied with my prayers.
On this special day, Jesus renewed His call for us to live our priesthood in a continuous Pascal relation with Him away from being close-minded. In other word, we need to keep Jesus alive in our hearts by serving Him with joy and peace. Let us keep in mind what He taught us during the wash of His disciples’ feet preceding the Last Supper “I have set you an example”, an example of humbleness and service. So, we are indeed servants of the Good News, nothing else, and we are called to renew our covenant to be a model of purity and hope for others and to be honest with our priesthood commitment, especially in these difficult circumstances.
I sincerely wish you a glorious resurrection full of graces and blessings
