When I was still an active duty soldier people would stop me all the time as I walked around in uniform to thank me for my service to our country. I appreciate the sentiment, but I can't stress enough that priests are heroes too and we should thank them for their ministry to the people of God.
I encourage everyone to thank our priests for all that they do.
I came across a website once called thankyoufather.com and you can post or read a thank you message directed at our priests.
Or even better yet, we can all thank a priest in person. I plan to.
"The eloquence of this liturgy was even more tremendous: and what it said
was one, simple, cogent, tremendous truth: this church, the court of
the Queen of Heaven, is the real capital of the country in which we are
living. This is the center of all the vitality that is in America. This
is the cause and reason why the nation is holding together. These men,
hidden in the anonymity of their choir and their white cowls, are doing
for their land what no army, no congress, no president could ever do as
such: they are winning for it the grace and the protection and the
friendship of God." --Thomas Merton from Seven Storey Mountain
