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.
A fig for those by law protected! Liberty's a glorious feast! Courts for Cowards were erected, Churches built to please the Priest.Robert Burns
Odi profanum vulgus et arceo; Favete linguis; carmina non prius Audita Musarum sacerdos Virginibus puerisque canto. I despise the uninitiated mob and I warn them off: keep your tongues well-omened; I, Priest of the Muses, am singing songs, never heard before, to girls and boys.
When the parish Priest rebuked him for his celibacy, saying it would lead him into debaucheryand sin, hesaid that a man who had to be muzzled bya wife as a protection against debauchery was not worthy of the joy of innocence. After that people began to treat him with priestly respect.Liam O'Flaherty
In times like these, he said, it must be hard for the churches to go on telling people that their Heavenly Father cared about the death of even a single sparrow. He'd hate to be a Priest, Herr Schindler said, in an era like this, when life did not have the value of a packet of cigarettes. Stern agreed but suggested, in the spirit of the discussion, that the Biblical reference Herr Schindler had made could be summed up by a Talmudic verse which said that he who saves the life of one man, saves the entire world.thomas keneally
Imagine using as an authority in the matter of marriage the opinion of a celibate Priest!joseph lewis
The organizer who creates roles, who creates the holes that will force the pegs to their shape, is a prime creator of personality itself. When we ask of a man, "What is he?" the answer is usually given in terms of his major role, job, or position in society; he is the place that he fills, a painter, a Priest, a politician, a criminal.kenneth boulding
As the caterpillar chooses the fairest leaves to her eggs on, so the Priest lays his curse on the fairest joys.orson scott card
Amen is a ratification by the people of what has been spoken, and it may be interpreted in our language as if they all said: May it so be done as the Priest has prayed.
...in the Churches of the East Amen is still commonly said after the form of baptism , sometimes by the bystanders, sometimes by the Priest himself. In the prayers of exorcism it is the person exorcised who is expected to say "Amen", and in the conferring of sacred orders, when the vestments, etc., are given to the candidate by the bishop with some prayer of benediction , it is again the candidate who responds, just as in the solemn blessing of the Mass the people answer in the person of the server.
The magistrates of the realm … draw 30,000 Ps. from the magistracy and become rich, doing harm to the poor Indians and the chiefs, despising and taking away their jobs and positions in this realm.… From this there is no defense by the principal chiefs, because they act with him and are partners. They are praised by the Priest, the magistrate: "Oh, what a good principal chief, don Pedro!"… The said magistrates … and other Spaniards who walk among the Indians are as absolute rulers with little fear of God and justice.
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.
I found it very moving and inspiring to see a humble Priest proclaimed a saint in the presence of hundreds of thousands of people. I think the message is clear: when people are living their lives in a manner where they are fulfilling their responsibilities, being good husbands, sons or daughters, they are doing something very important in God’s eyes. You don’t have to be a rock star or an athlete to live your life right.”
...the strange and compelling statue of man bearing down upon a supine female form depcits one of Goa ’s most famous home grown talents, Abbe Faria, an eighteenth century Goan Priest, father of ‘ hypnotism ’ and friend of Napolean in full melodramatic throes.
Despite his physical state and the abuse inflicted by DINA agents, who grossly mocked his condition as Priest, he found strength to console his cellmates, sharing his crusts of bread or fruit peels to help us survive.antonio llidó
Crown and cloth maken no Priest, nor emperor's bishop with his words, but power that crist giveth; and thus by life have been priests known.john wycliffe
If I'm a cruel satirist at least I'm not a hyprocrite: I never judge what other people do. Neither a politician nor a Priest, I never censor what others do. Neither a philospher nor a psychiatrist, I never bother trying to analyze or resolve my fears and neuroses.Federico Fellini
The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the Priest, and not inferior to either in her mission.william osler
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."
... Celibacy is not a matter of compulsion. Someone is accepted as a Priest only when he does it of his own accord.

Economic man and the Calvinist Christian sing to each other like voices in a fugue. The Calvinist stands alone before an almost merciless God ; no human agency can help him; his church is a means to political and social organization rather than a bridge to deity , for no Priest can have greater knowledge of the divine way than he himself; no friend can console him in fact , he should distrust all men; in the same fashion, Economic Man faces a merciless world alone and unaided, his hand against every other's.Lionel Trilling
