St. Joseph - Prayer : "Gracious St. Joseph, protect me and my family from all evil as you did the Holy Family. Kindly keep us ever united in the love of Christ, ever fervent in the imitation of the virtue of our Blessed Lady, your sinless spouse, and always faithful in devotion to you. Amen"
St. Francis of Assisi icon by Theophilia on deviantART. Great to see a Catholic presence on DeviantART. Check out her entire Saints' gallery-- she's even done some intricate pumpkin carvings of the Theotokos and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
It is Christ himself who is present to his Church as Head of his Body, Shepherd of his flock, high priest of the redemptive sacrifice, Teacher of Truth. This is what the Church means by saying that the priest, by virtue of the sacrament of Holy Orders, acts in persona Christi. It is the same priest, Christ Jesus, whose sacred person his minister truly represents . . . the priest possesses the authority to act in the power and place of the person of Christ himself. (CCC 1548)
