An answer from one of my other address lists came this comment. As I said the most important prayer we can ask for all priests is for fortitude. Surely lacking and in fact never used, definitely refused.
"I remember one Mass at the Cathedral where Ted Kennedy and John Kerry would be present.? They asked me to serve as a Eucharistic minister and I said "oh, you don't want me to serve".? When they asked why, I said if John and Ted get in my line, I will put my hand on their head and ask the Holy Spirit to come for a visit and withhold the Blessed Sacrament.? They didn't put me on duty".
