Archbishop Dolan: "God is the only treasure people desire to find in a priest."

Wow! Wonderful speech by His Excellency at Ireland's national seminary on May 27. Here is one great short paragraph, reprinted in CatholicCulture.org :

"Turning to the theme of priestly identity, Archbishop Dolan asked, 'Did He summon us to plan with Him? To organize with Him? To write strategic plans with Him? To draw up mission statements with Him? To work out with Him? To write job descriptions with Him? Nope! He did invite us to remain with Him, to abide with Him, to rest with Him, to come away with Him, to stay with Him, to keep vigil with Him.'”

The whole speech is filled with such wisdom. Read it here.
