The Greatest Gift a Priest can Give is not Eloquent Homilies, Detailed Plans, or Fine Wisdom but the Gift of Jesus
I know many amazing priests, who have been given great gifts of preaching, teaching, healing, administration, wisdom, prayer, and more, yet it must not be forgotten that the greatest gift he can give is Jesus himself in the Sacraments. All pales in comparison to the living Jesus Christ. Even if he gives this Gift in the poorest and most miserable of vessel of his humanity, no one except him can bring forth the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, and the obliteration of sin through the Mercy of God in the Sacrament of Confession.
