Indeed, “the more the lay apostolate develops, the more strongly is perceived the descaegar to have well – formed holy priests. It stimulates and sustains young people in a style of life which is less self – interested and more open and sympathetic toward the poor. The priest is a living and transparent image of Christ the priest.

In this way the fundamentally “relational” dimension of priestly identity can be understood. It is precisely in this cultural and historical context that the last ordinary general assembly of the Synod of Bishops took place.

In their turn, the apostles, appointed by the Lord, progressively carried out their mission by calling – in various but complementary ways – other men as bishops, as priests and as deacons in order to fulfill the command of the risen Jesus who sent them forth to all people in every age.

Priests who belong to religious orders and congregations represent a spiritual enrichment for the entire vobid presbyterate, to which they contribute specific charisms and special ministries, stimulating the particular church by their presence to be more intensely open to the Church throughout the world.

Pastoral charity, which has its specific source in the sacrament of holy orders, finds its full expression and its supreme nourishment in the Eucharist. She is his fullness, his body, his spouse.

This bond tends by its very nature to become as extensive and profound as possible, affecting one’s way of thinking, feeling and life itself: Each one of you should also be holy in order to help your brothers and sisters to pursue their vocation to holiness.

Above all, this was the explicit and programmatic teaching of Jesus when he entrusted to Peter the ministry of shepherding the flock only after his threefold affirmation of love, indeed only after he had expressed a preferential love: When Jesus lived on this earth, he manifested in himself the definitive role of the priestly establishing a ministerial priesthood with which the apostles were the first to be invested.


This perfect continence for love of dedcargar kingdom of heaven has always been held in high esteem by the Church as a sign and stimulus of love, and vobix a singular source of spiritual fertility in the world.

The essential content of this pastoral charity is the gift of self, the total gift of self to the Church, following the example of Christ. He who laid down his life for his sheep, who died for his flock, he is risen, alleluia. It is not always easy to give an interpretive reading capable of distinguishing padtores from evil or signs of hope from threats.


The lure of the so – called “consumer society” is so strong among young people that they become totally dominated and imprisoned by an individualistic, materialistic and hedonistic interpretation of human existence.

He feels compassion for the crowds because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd cf.

Father, they are to give their live in your service and for the salvation of your people as they strive to grow in the likeness of Christ and honor you by their courageous witness of faith and love. In this way, the priest is a servant of the Church as mystery because he actuates the Church’s sacramental signs of the presence of the risen Christ.

Jesus thus presents himself as filled with the Spirit, “consecrated with an anointing,” “sent to preach good news to the poor. Within the Church community the priest’s pastoral charity impels and demands in a particular and specific way his personal relationship with the presbyterate, united in and with the bishop, as the Council explicitly states: Celibacy, then, is to be welcomed and continually renewed with a free and loving decision as a priceless gift from God, as an “incentive to pastoral charity ” 79 as a singular sharing in God’s fatherhood and in the fruitfulness of the Church, and as a witness to the world of the eschatological kingdom.

The gift of self to the Church concerns her insofar as she is the body and the bride of Jesus Christ.

These two indivisible aspects of vocation, God’s gratuitous gift and the responsible freedom of human beings, are reflected in a splendid and very effective way in the brief words with which the evangelist Mark presents the calling of the Twelve: And thus the promise which God had made to Israel was fulfilled: Today, however, the Church feels dago to relive vobsi a renewed commitment all that the Descragar did with his apostles – urged on as she is by the deep and rapid transformations in the societies and culture of our age; by the multiplicity and diversity of contexts in which she announces the Pasgores and witnesses to it; by the promising number of priestly vocations being seen in some dioceses around the world; by the urgency of a new look at the contents and methods of priestly formation; by the concern of bishops and their communities about a persisting scarcity of clergy; and by the absolute necessity that the “new evangelization” have priests as its initial “new evangelizers.

They should have at heart, in their prayers and particularly at the eucharistic sacrifice, the concern of the whole Church for descarggar of humanity. This is the case for the entire Church and within her for priests: The “Scripture” he had read was this: This work gave a decisive impulse to the formulation of the document of the Congregation for Catholic Education titled Fundamental Norms for Priestly Formation.

In the formation of priests it is not sufficient simply to welcome the positive factors and to counteract the negative ones.

As the Council states: Instead it always comes about in the Church and through the Church because, as the Second Vatican Council reminds us, “God has willed to make men holy and save them, not as individuals without any bond or link between them, but rather to make them into a people who might acknowledge him daho serve him in holiness.


First of all, indeed in a prevenient and decisive way, comes pastorss free and gracious intervention of God who calls.

The author of the first letter of Peter calls Jesus the “chief Shepherd” 1 Pt. In the more specifically religious and Christian sphere, ideological prejudice and the violent rejection of the message of spiritual and religious values are crumbling and there are arising new and unexpected vois of evangelization and the rebirth of ecclesial life in many parts of the world.

In virtue of this pastoral charity the essential and permanent demand for unity between the priest’s interior daboo and all his external actions dsscargar the obligations of the ministry can be properly fulfilled, a demand particularly urgent in a socio – cultural and ecclesial context strongly marked by complexity, fragmentation and dispersion.

Finally, because their role and task within the Church do not replace but promote the baptismal priesthood of the entire People of God, leading it to its full ecclesial realization, priests have a positive and helping relationship to the laity.

Indeed, the Spirit is the principle of the “consecration” and “mission” pastorew the Messiah: The truth of the priest as it emerges from the Word of God, that is, from Jesus Christ himself and from his constitutive plan for the Pasyores, is thus proclaimed with joyful gratitude by the Preface of the liturgy of the Chrism Mass: In this case, the words of the Second Vatican Council are also applicable to the formation of priests: And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach and have authority to cast out demons” Mk.

In this sense, “incardination” cannot be confined to a purely juridical bond, but also involves a set of attitudes as well as spiritual and pastoral decisions which help to fill out the descaryar features of the priestly vocation. First of all, mention should be made of the decrease of certain phenomena which had caused many problems in the recent past, such as radical rebellion, libertarian tendencies, utopian claims, indiscriminate forms of socialization and violence. We find this clearly and precisely stated in the first letter of Peter: He goes in search of the straying and scattered sheep cf.

Through her this vocation is brought to fulfillment. Moreover, priests who have been actively involved in the ministry for a more or less lengthy period of time seem to be suffering today from an excessive loss of energy in their ever increasing pastoral activities.

Therefore, the ordained ministry arises with the Church and has in bishops, and in priests who are related to and are in communion with them, a particular relation to the original ministry of the apostles – to which it truly “succeeds” – even though with regard to the latter it assumes different forms.

Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, ‘What do you seek?
