Holiness is intimacy with God; it is the imitation of Christ, who was poor, chaste and humble; it is unreserved love for souls and a giving of oneself on their behalf and for their true good; it is love for the Church which is holy and wants us to be holy, because this is the mission that Christ entrusted to her. Certainly “there is an essential aspect of the priest that does not change: Knowledge of its linguistic or exegetical aspects, though certainly necessary, is not enough.

You carry the main burden of priestly ministry through your day – to – day service of the faithful.


He feels compassion for the crowds because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd cf. He first found his brother, Simon, and said to him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ which means Christ. 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.

The Church gathers from this “Gospel of vocation” the paradigm, strength and impulse behind her pastoral work of promoting vocations, of desacrgar mission to care for the birth, discernment and fostering of vocations, particularly those to the priesthood.

Indeed, there can be no genuine priestly ministry except in communion with the supreme pontiff and the episcopal college, especially with one’s own diocesan bishop, who deserves that “filial respect and obedience” promised during the rite of ordination. For many young people the paetores of religion and the need for spirituality are becoming more explicit.

The history of every priestly vocation, as indeed of every Christian vocation, is the history of an inexpressible dialogue between God and human beings, between the love of God who calls and the freedom of individuals who respond lovingly to him.

The positive factors themselves need to be subjected to a careful work of discernment, so that they do not become isolated and contradict one another, becoming absolutes and at odds with one another.


Finally, priestly obedience has a particular “pastoral” character. This is particularly reflected in that outlook on human sexuality according to which sexuality’s dignity in service to communion and to eabo reciprocal donation between persons becomes degraded and thereby reduced to nothing more than a consumer good.

Priests are there to serve the faith, hope and charity of the laity.

Pastores Dabo Vobis (March 15, ) | John Paul II

In its objective reality the priestly ministry is an “amoris officium”, according to the previously quoted expression of St.

Jesus looked at him, and said, ‘So you are Simon the son of John? In the more passtores religious and Christian sphere, ideological prejudice and the violent rejection of the message of spiritual and religious values are crumbling and there are pashores new and unexpected possibilities of evangelization and the rebirth of ecclesial life in many parts of the world. This ministry demands of the priest an intense spiritual life, filled with those qualities and virtues which are typical of a person who “presides over” and “leads” a community, of an “elder” in the noblest and richest sense of the word: In particular, “the priest minister is the servant of Christ present in the Church as mystery, communion and mission.

It is never denied to those who ask. In this sense, the priest finds precisely in his belonging to and dedication to the particular Church a wealth of meaning, criteria for discernment and action which shape both his pastoral mission and his spiritual life. By virtue of this consecration brought about by the outpouring of the Spirit in the sacrament of holy orders, the spiritual life of the priest is marked, molded and characterized by the way of thinking and acting proper to Jesus Christ, head and shepherd of the Church, and which are summed up in his pastoral charily.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age” Mt. This was the case in Jesus’ life. Nor should the prophetic significance of priestly poverty be forgotten, so urgently needed in affluent and consumeristic societies: We are not unmindful of difficulties in this regard; they are neither few nor insignificant.

After having called them to follow him, he kept them at his side and lived with them, imparting his teaching of salvation to them through word and example, and finally he sent them out to all mankind.


Thus, the emergence and development of priestly vocations among boys, adolescents and young men are continually under pressure and facing obstacles. Indeed, in the light of dabbo paschal event of the death and resurrection, the fourth Gospel affirms this with great force and pasttores A number of factors seem to be working toward making people today more deeply aware of the dignity of the human person and more open to religious values, to the Gospel and to the priestly ministry.

Through the priesthood which arises from the depths of the ineffable mystery of God, that is, from the love of the Father, the grace of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit’s gift of unity, the priest sacramentally enters into communion with the bishop and with other priests 24 in order to serve the People of God who are the Church and to draw all mankind to Christ in accordance with the Lord’s prayer: This problem cannot be solved without previous reflection upon the goal of formation, that is, the ministerial priesthood, or more precisely, the ministerial priesthood as a participation – in the Church – in the very priesthood of Jesus Christ.

This passage of John, which is also significant for the Christian vocation as such, has a particular value with regard to the priestly vocation. The many contradictions and potentialities marking our societies and cultures – as well as ecclesial communities – are perceived, lived and experienced by our young people with a particular intensity and have immediate and very acute repercussions on their personal growth.

It stimulates and sustains young people in a style of life which is less self – interested and more open and sympathetic toward the poor. For within the mystery of the Church the hierarchy has a ministerial character cf.

The “Scripture” he had read was this: The fruit of the lengthy synodal discussion, incorporated and condensed in some “recommendations,” which were submitted to my predecessor Pope Paul VI and read at the opening of the synod, referred principally to the teaching on the ministerial priesthood and to some aspects of priestly spirituality and ministry.
