I would gladly give my life if only Christ could find in priests what he is expecting from them.
This is a post taken from a site dedicated to Father William Doyle SJ, a remarkable man and priest www.fatherdoyle.com. The following post, written on the Feast of St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, focuses on a letter of Fr. Doyle to a religious for whom he served as spiritual director. In the letter he speaks of a biography he was reading about Blessed Marie de Jésus. Both shared the desire to offer themselves in reparation for sins and for the sanctification of priests. Fr. Doyle also felt that the young religious to whom he was writing had such a calling and was encouraging her to embrace it fully.
