The Gift of the Priesthood

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has just put out this wonderful new video: “The Gift of the Priesthood.”

What I love about this particular video as opposed to similar past efforts meant to drum up interest in the priesthood, is that it captures the dignity of the priestly vocation using the sounds and surrounds of an actual priest– the music of the Church, images of the Church and its people– rather than an heroic movie soundtrack with a stylized vision of the priesthood.

There are interviews with priests answering real questions that a man might have upon entering the seminary. How will I be happy as a priest? Will I be good enough? Will I let people down?

And the answers to these questions are helpful to anyone striving to live their Christian vocation.

A must see and a must share:
