An Ardent Desire
It is not enough for the priests and ministers of the future to be moral people, well-trained, eager to help their fellow humans...the central question is, Are the leaders of the future truly men and women of God, people with an ardent desire to dwell in God's presence, to listen to God's voice, to look at God's beauty, to touch God's incarnate Word, and to taste fully God's infinite goodness?I pray for those seeking to respond to the call God has placed on their lives to do, not something higher or better, but to a particular ministry of ordained leadership within the ministry of Christ's Body, the church, which is the work of all the baptized.
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
