the Catholic priest today

As the Year for Priests begins, I’ve been giving some thought about what I might be doing on my blog during this time.

It seems to me that there is a good deal of confusion in the culture — and even in some quarters of the Church — about who the priest is, what is the relationship between the ordained priesthood and the priesthood of the baptized, etc. — so I’ll be highlighting books, videos, essays and other resources that I think are helpful in understanding priesthood.

I might also begin a series of short glosses / commentaries on Pastores Dabo Vobis, the apostolic exhortation written by Pope John Paul II. I began a similar project a while ago with Veritatis Splendor, which I plan to return to one day.

Today, I’m recommending the following video produced by the Midwest Theological Forum: The Catholic Priest Today. You can watch it online here.
