Blessed Virgin and the priesthood

As the feast of the Assumption nears, Pope Benedict XVI used today's general audience to explore the relationship between Mary and priests.

 "The CurĂ© d'Ars, who we think of this year especially, loved to repeat that after Jesus Christ gave us everything he could give, he wanted to make us heirs of what was most precious to him, his holy mother,” the pontiff said. “This applies to all Christians, but especially for priests. Every priest can and should truly feel himself to be the son of this most holy and most humble mother."
