Ordinary Time, 30th Sunday. Today is Priesthood Appreciation Sunday and our readings show some interesting aspects of priesthood. Hebrews reminds us that only Christ is the high priest and all other priests participate in His priesthood. Jeremiah reminds the people how much God cares for them, a care which is Sacramentally visible through the priest. The Gospel shows that the priest is a disciple too. Priesthood is given to serve God’s people, and the priest not only leads, but he also follows. (25 Oct 2009)
