Running Preface

Fr. Wilker is fond of using Preface I of Saints for his masses at the Relic Shrine in Maria Stein.  it includes some phrases that I wonder whether anyone who has never run a distance race can appreciate:

By their way of life you offer us an example, by communion with them you give us companionship, by their intercession, sure support, so that, encouraged by so great a cloud of witnesses, we may run as victors in the race before us and win with them the imperishable crown of glory, through Christ our Lord
