See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
The comprehensive picture drawn here of Vyasa in the MBh includes his functions as seer, Priest, ascetic, and spiritual preceptor. Of all the epic’s, Vyasa is the one who most closely corresponds to the idea of brahminhood promulgated by the dharma literature and the MBh’s Shanti Parvan - The section of the epic having the greater similarity to the dharma literature.
The oracles are dumb, No voice or hideous hum Runs through the arched roof in words deceiving. Apollo from his shrine Can no more divine, With hollow shriek the steep of Delphos leaving. No nightly trance or breathed spell Inspires the pale-eyed Priest from the prophetic cell.john milton
But the four Evangelists agree in ascribing to Jesus evasive and equivocal answers to plain questions, not only those of the high Priest and Pilate ; and quite generally the Jesus of the New Testament avoids straightforward statements, preferring parables .
Jesus...is the final Priest who makes all priesthood obsolete not merely the performance of ritual sacrifice, but the office, pomp and circumstance of priestly authority and hierarchy itself. Instead of deferring to any caste of religious hierarchs, followers of the Way are thus now summoned to collectively be a "royal priesthood," a "chosen race" or "holy nation" built not upon offices of any kind but upon transferred allegiance to God's in-breaking "kingdom."
A friend will tell you she saw your old boyfriend – and he's a Priest.Erma Bombeck
By education most have been misled; So they believe, because they so were bred. The Priest continues what the nurse began, And thus the child imposes on the man.john dryden
No man, however strong, can serve ten years as schoolmaster, Priest, or Senator, and remain fit for anything else. All the dogmatic stations in life have the effect of fixing a certain stiffness of attitude forever, as though they mesmerised the subject.henry adams
In 16th-century Italy there lived Lodovico Gonzaga, a 16-year old seminarist who was very fond of playing ball. Once a certain Priest passing by wondered if for a future Priest the youth was too keen on his pursuit and asked him:"What would you do if you learned that in half an hour the end of the world was coming?" To which Lodovico replied: "I'd play on." According to the Russian thinker Georgy Fedotov, the importance of culture lies in precisely that: we go on playing ball on the verge of Doomsday...
Rolfe's vice was spiritual more than it was carnal: it might be said that he was a pander and a swindler, because he cared for nothing but his faith. He would be a Priest or nothing, so nothing it had to be…If he could not have Heaven, he would have Hell, and the last footprints seem to point unmistakably towards the Inferno.frederick rolfe
Behold, whiles she before the altar stands,Hearing the holy Priest that to her speakes,And blesseth her with his two happy hands.Edmund Spenser
How thrilling to discover one had depths, how consoling to find them less polluted than the shallows, how encouraging to identify the enemy not as a fissure in the will but as a dead fetus in the specimen jar of the unconscious. My attention was being paternally led away from the excruciating present to the happy, healthy future that would be enabled by an analysis of the sick past, as though the Priest had nothing to do but study old books and make bright forecasts, the present not worthy of notice.Edmund White
When the Priest went in, he stopped short at the sight of this defamation of God's holy place, and dared not serve the requiem on such a spot. And so the church was left forever, with monsters stuck in the doors and windows, was overgrown with forest trees, roots, rough grass and wild thorns, and no one can now find the way to it.nikolai vasilievich gogol
A well proportioned mind is one which shows no particular bias; one of which we may safely say that it will never cause its owner to be confined as a madman, tortured as a heretic, or crucified as a blasphemer. Also, on the other hand, that it will never cause him to be applauded as a prophet, revered as a Priest, or exalted as a king. Its usual blessings are happiness and mediocrity.thomas hardy
It was Rosenberg, the intellectual high Priest of the "master race," who provided the doctrine of hatred which gave the impetus for the annihilation of Jewry, and who put his infidel theories into practice against the Eastern Occupied Territories. His woolly philosophy also added boredom to the long list of Nazi atrocities.alfred rosenberg
I'd got accepted to the seminary in Wisconsin, and I was gonna become a Priest, but the last second I thought, 'I’ll just go to public school.' I had just gotten a new amplifier in my bedroom, and I didn’t think I was allowed to take it with me.jack white
The pedant and the Priest have always been the most expert of logicians and the most diligent disseminators of nonsense and worse.
The Priest he merry is, and blithe Three-quarters of a year, But oh! it cuts him like a scythe When tithing time draws near.william cowper
Perhaps thou wert a Priest, if so, my struggles Are vain, for priestcraft never owns its juggles.horace smith
For Maggie has written a letter to give me my choice between The wee little whimpering Love and the great god Nick O'Teen. And I have been servant of Love for barely a twelvemonth clear, But I have been Priest of Partagas a matter of seven year. And the gloom of my bachelor days is flecked with the cherry light Of stumps that I burned to friendship, and pleasure and work and fight.rudyard kipling
Christian Socialism is but the holy water with which the Priest consecrates the heart-burnings of the aristocrat.
No mighty trance, or breathed spell Inspires the pale-eyed Priest from the prophetic cell.john milton
And he shewed me Joshua the high Priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
Jesus Christ, whose body and blood are truly contained in the sacrament of the altar under the forms of bread and wine; the bread being changed ( transsubstantiatio ) by divine power into the body, and the wine into the blood, so that to realize the mystery of unity we may receive of Him what He has received of us. And this sacrament no one can effect except the Priest who has been duly ordained in accordance with the keys of the Church, which Jesus Christ Himself gave to the Apostles and their successors.
There is in every village a torch: The schoolteacher. And an extinguisher: The Priest.
