Christ, the Eternal High Priest

Join host Brian Patrick and I tomorrow at 8:40 AM for our continued series on 740 AM, Sacred Heart Radio, covering the annual Holy Thursday Letters to Priests.

We have arrived at the letter for 1997, during the proximate preparation for the Great Jubillee Year of the New Millennium. The letter begins with a reflection by Pope John Paul on his 50th Anniversary of Prietly Ordination and concludes with a reflection of Christ, the Eternal High Priest, using the Litany of our Lord, Jesus Christ, Priest and Victim, as a starting point. The Litany was prayed in the seminary in Krakow the night before a priestly ordination, and the Holy Father brings us back to that momentuous day in his life.
