Because Diego, Kamil, John Paul, Dražen, Edmond, Jae, Anthony, Preston, Darren and Nicholas, who are your relatives and friends, are now to be ordained to the priesthood, I invite you to consider in the light of the Word of God we have just heard the sacrament that they will receive. As you well know, the Lord Jesus is the one and only great high priest of the New Testament; but in him, God has made his entire holy people a royal priesthood. All of us!
