A very striking saying

A beautiful and inspiring video of a Transalpine Redemptorist, Fr Antony Mary FSSR in New Zealand. A saying he received when he was a young priest really struck me:-

"Young priests think that they are holy, but they are not. Middle-aged priests think that they are not holy, and they are not. An older-aged priest thinks he is not holy, but he probably is."

Like Fr Antony I am definitely in the middle-aged priest bracket!
