QUOTATION: Virtue in the Priesthood

St. Alphonsus Liguori
If any one receive Holy Orders without having led the requisite good life, not only would he himself commit a mortal sin, but also the bishop who confers them upon him without having been morally certain, by sufficient proofs, of the good conduct of the candidate.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Holy Eucharist
