In the Church there is equality, because once baptized we are all equal, all children of the same God, our Father.

You say that you are now beginning to understand what a priestly soul means. Don't be annoyed with me if I tell you that the facts show that you only realize it in theory.

SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
