“We live at a time that is broadly characterized by a subliminal relativism that penetrates every area of life. Sometimes this relativism becomes aggressive, when it opposes those who say that they know where the truth or meaning of life is to be found.”

“And we observe that this relativism exerts more and more influence on human relationships and on society. This is reflected, among other things, in the inconstancy and fragmentation of many people’s lives and in an exaggerated individualism. Many no longer seem capable of any form of self-denial or of making a sacrifice for others. Even the altruistic commitment to the common good, in the social and cultural sphere or on behalf of the needy, is in decline. Others are now quite incapable of committing themselves unreservedly to a single partner. People can hardly find the courage now to promise to be faithful for a whole lifetime; the courage to make a decision and say: now I belong entirely to you, or to take a firm stand for fidelity and truthfulness and sincerely to seek a solution to their problems.”

“The Church in Germany is superbly organized. But behind the structures, is there also a corresponding spiritual strength, the strength of faith in the living God? We must honestly admit that we have more than enough by way of structure but not enough by way of Spirit. I would add: the real crisis facing the Church in the western world is a crisis of faith. If we do not find a way of genuinely renewing our faith, all structural reform will remain ineffective.”

“If the Church, in Pope Paul VI’s words, is now struggling ‘to model itself on Christ’s ideal,’ this ‘can only result in its acting and thinking quite differently from the world around it, which it is nevertheless striving to influence.’ (Ecclesiam Suam, 58) In order to accomplish her mission, she will need again and again to set herself apart from her surroundings, to become in a certain sense ‘unworldly’.”

During the weekly general audience, Benedict XVI explained the mystery behind the Incarnation, saying that “God gives us the greatest gift possible, the gift of himself. For our sake, God became one of us, sharing our human existence to the fullest and giving us in exchange a share in his own divine life.”

Children of God trust in Jesus’ infallibility and His advocate the Holy Spirit.  Trust in His vicar who He has given authority to teach and not leave us orphans in this dark world.  The Holy Spirit that we cannot see works in this world and can repel the darkness.  Trust in Jesus Christ.

Today we hear, “Why be a Priest?” because of all the scandals and were in the so called “enlightened age”.

Im including this video because as a Catholic Im asked questions about everything from the Bible to the Priesthood.

I hope this answers many of your questions as to why these Priests actually answer the call to the Priesthood.

It is not easy and it was never meant to be.  It was instituted by Jesus Christ and comes from the Old Testament.

One is never deserving of the Priesthood and it never will be.  Jesus called men for whatever reason.  He didnt call we women and I dont feel slighted in anyway because I know that Jesus’ has always loved us and always will.  He understood and understands the men and women of all ages in all ways.   Trust in Him.

He knows why He wants you men to be a Priest and at least the one’s He calls to do this brave job.  The Priesthood is not for the cowardly or for just anyone but for the courageous.   You cannot be courageous for Jesus unless you follow Jesus.   He said we couldnt do it without Him and we never will.  He calls all but not all are called to this life.

He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.   That is what He calls the Priesthood to do.  You can only be brave when you follow a great General.  The Lord is the Great King who is the Great Priest and who is the Great Prophet.

Jesus is calling you and His Servant Benedict XVI is calling you as will other popes look for you.

Do you feel your being called to this wonderous, mysterious calling in the Great Vineyard?  Say yes if you are. Its a vocation not a job.  We need you.   The world needs you and is calling you into the world but not of it.

With Him all things are possible.

Love and Peace brothers and sisters.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
