(St. Agnes, Virgin and Martyr)
Melchizedek, king of Salem and priest of God Most High, . . .
His name first means righteous king, and he was also “king of Salem,” that is, king of peace. Without father, mother, or ancestry, without beginning of days or end of life, thus made to resemble the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.
Heb 7:1-3, 15-17
The Psalmist writes: “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
The Servant of servants, the Lord our God, Forever!
