The priest is not an angel sent from heaven.  He is a man, a member of the Church, a Christian.  Remaining man and Christian, he begins to speak to you the word of God.  This word is not his own.  No, he comes to you because God has told him to proclaim God’s word.  Perhaps he has not entirely understood it himself.  Perhaps he adulterates it.  Perhaps he falters and stammers.  How else could he speak God’s word, ordinary man that he is?  But must not some one of us say something about God, about eternal life, about the majesty of grace in our sanctified being; must not some one of us speak of sin, the judgment and mercy of God?
