Congratulations, Fr. James McCabe, C.Ss.R.!

"Oh Jesus, you poured out the fullness of your grace over me.
You made me a priest and gave me the power
to offer you up to God.
Ah! God! This is too much for my soul.
I will pray to you that you may give to me holiness,
and to all the living and the dead, pardon,
that some day we may all be together with you, our dearest God!"

— St. John Neumann
on his ordination day, June 25, 1836
