Catholic Priesthood

Saint Josemaría Escrivá and the Mission of a Priest

Yesterday I wrote about the film, Light of Love, which began production on Sunday, June 23. Focusing on Vocations to Religious Life and the Holy Priesthood is important to me, so for today’s post I give you a short 3 minute video on the Mission of a Priest by today’s patron – Saint Josemaría Escrivá. For those you who don’t know much about him, I would suggest checking out last year’s post, Saint Josemaría Escrivá – Founder of Opus Dei.

Once you have watched the short video of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, I would then watch the video – Fishers of Men. This short film was produced and released by Grassroots Films back in 2006. It’s an amazing film that shows the important life of a Catholic priest. All Catholics, no matter if you are married or a priest, should watch this film and the upcoming film from the Imagine Sisters Movement.

If you know any young men that are thinking about the priesthood, please show them this short film. We need the New Breed of Holy Priests in the Catholic Church to hear the call from God, to step up to that call, and answer it by giving their lives for Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church.
