Bringing it to Fulfillment

While preparing the booklet for my deaconate ordination held this past November 20th, Solemnity of Christ, King of the Universe, my Mongolian language teacher was very interested in words of the rite. She was particularly moved by the phrase “ believe what you read, teach what you believe and practice what you teach”. Although not yet a Christian, she understood clearly what was to take place that blessed day.
On the advice of my spiritual director, I had been praying and meditating on the Prayer of Consecration for the Rite of Ordination since May. It is a theologically rich prayer which reveals the seriousness and responsibility of this first grade of Holy Orders. In the beginning I kept thinking to myself how can anyone live up to the Church’s desire that her ordained ministers be nothing less than saints.
