How to use priest in a sentence?

  1. Douglas Bazi:

    I never talked about my story for many reasons but, first, because this is the cost [of being] a Christian in Iraq, second because, as a priest, we are used to persecution. When we get in the seminarythey tell us: ‘You don’t know, maybe youwill be killed one day.’ Third,I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. Who I am to complain?

  2. Jeb Bush:

    Look, I think we could all use a lot of mercy in this world. And the pope is a loving person, and having absolution -- [allowing] the priest to give absolution is extraordinary, but I'm not surprised at all, i hope that we also focus on mercy for the unborn, the hundreds of thousands of babies that will die. I think we need to have a society that protects life from the beginning to end, and we should be a repentant society for sure. And mercy should be at the heart of everything we do.

  3. Jeff King:

    Father Josiah Trenham said. The incident took place on April 12, some four months after a terror attack left 14 dead in nearby San Bernardino, and just over three months before a French priest was killed by ISIS-linked jihadists in his church. The events, whether far or near, underscore a grim new reality for pastors such as Father Josiah Trenham : Instead of offering sanctuary from evil, churches could in fact be attractive targets for terror. Many churches are now hiring self-defense instructors for classes or security guards that include off-duty police, said Ryan Mauro, a professor of Homeland Security at Liberty University and national security analyst for the Clarion Project. If you are an Islamist terrorist seeking self-glory, executing a priest will bring you more attention than executing an average civilian. While no lethal terror attacks have occurred inside a U.S. church to date, experts like Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, notes the threat tally is growing. I'm pretty sure there will be attacks in the future, until [ radical Islam is defeated ], we can expect Christians, including in the West, to rationally tighten security measures and try to protect themselves from attack. In February, Khial Abu-Rayyan, 21, of Dearborn Heights, Mich., was arrested after Khial Abu-Rayyan told an undercover The FBI agent Khial Abu-Rayyan was preparing to shoot up a major church near Khial Abu-Rayyan home on behalf of ISIS. A month earlier, the Rev. Roger Spradlin of Valley Baptist Church – one of the biggest congregations in Bakersfield, Calif. – told attendees that they had received a threat written in Arabic. Undercover officers were then placed during worship services.

  4. Anna Wintour:

    My very favorite was Father James Martin, he’s a Jesuit priest who was advising us on the exhibition, and he came in his appropriate robes and apparently all night people were coming up to him and saying, ‘I really like that you came as a sexy priest and you look so authentic.’ That was my favorite.

  5. Wieland:

    It is commonly a dangerous thing for a man to have more sense than his neighbours. Socrates paid for his superiority with his life; and if Aristotle saved his skin, accused as he was of heresy by the chief priest Eurymedon, it was because he took to his heels in time.
