“I often say this to young priests: You are consecrated in your priesthood and as priests you have all the powers. But your promise is above all fidelity. 

That promise, consecrated today by God himself, must make you climb higher every day .. . And in fifty years time, you must be priests still younger than today, priests more convinced, more missionary, more full of courage. Because everyday you are going to be faced with fresh problems . . .”

Cardinal Joseph Cardijn, 16 April 1966 in England
