Title: CATHOLIC PRIEST TODAY: A MAN OF FAITH- A MAN OF TRADITION, A MAN OF GOD, THE
Description:
This documentary is designed to speak to all those who have an interest in the Catholic priesthood. It is a complement to Fishers of Men cd 61131 produced by the USCCB. It is about priests living the great adventure of a life completely dedicated to Christ in His Body, the Church. It shows that the mission of a priest is built on a life of daily prayer and centered on the Eucharist. It illustrates the divine nature of his calling and how the priesthood is not a profession, although a priest pursues the highest professional standards in his pastoral work. Many people who only see the priest at Sunday Mass may wonder about his day-to-day life. This documentary follows the lives of three actual priests through the course of an ordinary week. The film shows that those who accept the challenge of the priesthood in today's world realize it is great time to be a priest. This film is highly recommended for young men who are contemplating the priesthood, families whose sons are discerning a possible vacation, and all who are interested in the real lives of priests and desire to help them.
