All baptised are priests and prophets, God's workers

teaching, without adding/modifying their own ideas and opinions, and this 

last thing is more difficult than we might think.


The job of priests is to be transmitters of Christ messages, but in order 

to be able to do that, they themselves need to be holy, because their job is 

not like any worldly job. This is why we need to pray for them.


And us; the baptized and confirmed, in order to carry out our own baptismal 

promise, we need to be holy too.  


"Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, 

and slander of every kind.  Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, 

so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,  now that you have tasted 

that the Lord is good."

 (1 Peter 2:2)


"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for 
his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called 

you out of darkness into his marvelous light."

(1Peter, 2-9)


Working moment by moment every day, in an effort to become better, 

kinder, less egoistic, more patient, looking for the log in our own eye instead 

of focusing on the speck of sawdust in our neighbor's eye.


Praying for those that hurt us, for those that persecute us, and instead of 

looking for justice in this world, looking to be just with God. 


"You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be 

a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through 

Jesus Christ."

 (1 Peter 2:5)


Because sooner than we think, we will be face to face with Him, 

time is running out. 

"The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that 

you may pray.  Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over 

a multitude of sins."

1 Peter 4, 7-8
