September 11, 2013 – Scriptural Examples of Priestly Power Acting on Our Behalf
// September 11th, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery
Have you ever wondered at the power made available to us by God through our priests? In Sacred Scripture, we find beautiful examples of how God, at the time of the Israelites in Egypt, works through chosen ministers to accomplish their salvation. For ancient Israel, this amounted to securing their release from slavery, no less. Later, God provides Manna and the Law. On the one hand, he keeps them from starvation, and on the other, God gives the Israelites the means, through his minister, to live with God, rather than return to slavery. Monsignor Stephen Otellini from the Archdiocese of San Francisco is my special guest. He offers both grace and wisdom to help us better understand the special power that God offers us through the priesthood.
