Reflecting on long term priesthood
AKMA writes a lovely post on the occasion of his 26th anniversary of ordination. I particularly liked this phrase:
...if priesthood consists in anything more than charades in outlandish robes, it consists in receiving and honouring and passing along ever further the gifts of trust and love and forgiveness that come through you all, from a source distant and intimate — a receiving and honouring and sharing that knows no end. Who could ask for more?
