"As a priest there inevitably comes a time that the people he is entrusted with break his heart wide open. This is nothing other than Christ letting priests experience His own Heart being deeply broken when faced with sin, indifference, and ingratitude. What is there to do but love them with the love of Christ, offering a broken heart for their conversion, begging all the while, that if he be cast down, they be lifted up; if he be crushed, they be renewed, if he be crucified, they be given life and holiness."
-Rev. Samuel Medley
