St. Norbert, Bishop and Founder of Norbertines[1]

St. Norbert, Bishop and Founder of Norbertines

“O Priest! You are not yourself because you are God. You are not of yourself because you are the servant and minister of Christ. You are not your own because you are the spouse of the Church. You are not yourself because you are the mediator between God and man. You are not from yourself because you are nothing. What then are you? Nothing and everything. O Priest! Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: ‘He saved others, himself he cannot save!’” (St. Norbert, Bishop and Founder of the Norbertines)
