1868: Priest God’s minister

During a retreat Don Bosco was preaching to the confreres, he spoke on the priesthood and on fidelity to the Congregation:

“A priest is God’s minister, not a merchant. A priest is one who should strive to save souls, not make money for himself. Then, let no one ever say to himself, I will stay just a while in the Congregation, may be three years. Such a man would be guilty of downright theft before God and the Congregation …. Let us therefore do as Our Savior says. No one who is putting his hand to the plow should look back, for such a one woul, become unworthy of the kingdom of heaven. Be stout-hearts then! Let us all consecrate ourselves to the Lord, but with no reservations. ” (BM XII, 324)
