Greet and send blessings to the freshly ordained leader and servant of the faithful with our Celebration of the Mass Ordination Greeting Card! The front depicts the Heavenly Wedding Feast with an elegant chalice and Host. Below the Host is a priest's commendation before Mass: "O priest of God, say this Mass as though it were your first Mass, your last Mass, your only Mass." Remind yourself and the new "priest of God Most High" about the power and grace bestowed upon a priest, that he is made into Christ more fully by the Sacrament in order to bring us, his sheep, closer to our Home with Christ. As the Cure of Ars said, "The priest continues the work of redemption on earth.... If we really understood the priest on earth, we would die not of fright but of love.... The Priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus."
This 5"x7" card comes with envelopes and is available in a bundle of 6. It adds the perfect personal touch to an Ordination gift!
Inside of the card, on the bottom left:
"Every high priest is chosen from his fellow-men and appointed to serve God on their behalf, to offer sacrifices and offerings for sins. Since he himself is weak in many ways, he is able to be gentle with those who are ignorant and make mistakes." -Hebrews 5:1-2
