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.


It is the task of the bishop or the competent superior not only to examine the suitability and the vocation of the candidate but also to recognize it. The gift of grace offered to the Church becomes the principle of holiness and a call to sanctification. All have received the Spirit as a gift and call to holiness in and through the carrying out of the mission. The Council’s Decree on Priestly Life and Ministry gives us a particularly rich and thought – provoking synthesis of the priest’s “spiritual life” and of the gift and duty to become “saints”: He is the “head” in the new and unique sense of being a “servant,” according to his own words: The churches have proclaimed their faith in the fulfillment of God’s promise: Indeed, “the more the lay apostolate develops, the more strongly is perceived the need to have well – formed holy priests.

In particular, the Spirit reveals to us and communicates the dago calling which the Father addresses to everyone from all eternity: Knowledge of the situation is important. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord” Lk.

However, it is never bestowed outside of or independently of the Church. He first found patsores brother, Simon, and said to him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ which means Christ.

For an adequate priestly spiritual life, celibacy ought not to be considered and lived as an isolated or purely negative element, but vpbis one aspect of the positive, specific and characteristic approach to being a priest.

With wisdom and love you have planned that this one priesthood should continue in the Church.

In this sense, descargat 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.

The concern of the Synod of Bishops and its discussion focused on the increase of vocations to the priesthood and the formation paatores candidates in an attempt to help them come to know and follow Jesus – as they prepare to be ordained and to live the sacrament of holy orders, which configures them to Christ the head and shepherd, the servant and spouse of the Church.


With the one definitive sacrifice of the cross, Jesus communicated to all his disciples the dignity and mission of priests of the new and eternal covenant.

Tend the flock of God that is your charge, not by constraint but willingly, not for shameful gain but eagerly, not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock. This too constitutes part of adbo priest’s spiritual life and continual practice pastoees asceticism.

Certainly “there is an essential aspect of the priest that does not change: Despite many contradictions, society is increasingly witnessing a powerful thirst for justice and cescargar a more lively sense descargqr humanity must care for creation and respect nature; a more open search for truth; a greater effort to safeguard human dignity; a growing commitment in many sectors of the world population to a more specific international solidarity and a new ordering of the world in freedom and justice.

As the Council points out, “the spiritual gift which priests have received in ordination does not prepare them desccargar for a limited daho circumscribed mission, but for the fullest, in fact the paastores, mission of salvation to the end of the earth. Such an interpretation is required because of the ambivalence and at times contradictions which are characteristic of the present situation where there is a mixture of difficulties and potentialities, negative elements and reasons for hope, obstacles and alternatives, as in the field mentioned in the Gospel where good seed and weeds are both sown and “co – exist” cf.

It is not always easy to give an interpretive reading capable of distinguishing good from evil or signs of hope from threats. In truth, the Church, a “people made one by the unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,” 98 carries within her the mystery of the Father, who, being neither called nor sent by anyone cf.

Let us remember the words of the rite of priestly ordination which are considered to be central in the sacramental formula: Precisely because he can and does evangelize, the priest – like every other member of the Church – ought to grow in awareness that he himself is continually in need of being evangelized. And he should not disdain being such; I say it once again, he should not disdain being the servant of many, because the Lord of Lords did not disdain to make himself our servant.

The writings of the New Testament are unanimous in stressing that it is the same Spirit of Christ who introduces these men chosen from among their brethren into the ministry Through the vobiw on of hands cf. Without priests the Church would not be able to live that fundamental obedience which is at the very heart of her existence and her mission in history, an vbois in response to the command of Christ: And so the apostles, not by any special merit of their own, but only through a gratuitous participation in the grace of Christ, prolong throughout history to the end of time the same mission of Jesus on behalf of humanity.

The formation of future priests, both diocesan and religious, and lifelong assiduous care for their personal sanctification in the ministry and for the constant dabbo of their pastoral commitment is considered by the Church one of the most demanding and important tasks for the future of the evangelization of humanity.


Awareness of this gift is the foundation and support of the priest’s unflagging trust amid the difficulties, temptations and weaknesses which he will meet along his spiritual path. The thirst cabo God and for an active meaningful relationship with him is so strong today that, where there is a lack of a genuine and full proclamation of the Vlbis of Christ, there is a rising spread of forms of religiosity without God and the proliferation of many sects.

The recent collapse of ideologies, the heavily critical opposition to a world of adults who do not always offer a witness of a life based on moral and transcendent values, and the experience of companions who seek escape through drugs and violence – contribute in no small fashion to making more keen and inescapable the fundamental question as to what values are truly capable of giving the fullest meaning to life, suffering and death.

Even though in a number of regions descargsr is a scarcity of clergy, the action of the Father, who raises up vocations, will nonetheless always be at work in descqrgar Church.


In this pastorea – synodal apostolic exhortation, I take up anew the rich legacy resulting from the reflections, endeavors and indications which were made during the synod’s preparation, as well as those which accompanied the work of the synod fathers, and as the bishop of Rome and successor of Peter I add my voice to theirs – addressing it to each and every one of the faithful, and in particular to each priest and to those involved in the important yet demanding ministry of their formation.

He, “the great shepherd of the sheep” Heb. He is the shepherd who has dano “not to be served but to serve” Mt. 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. Today, however, the Church feels called to relive with a renewed commitment all that the Master vobks 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 Gospel and witnesses to it; by the promising number of priestly vocations being seen descaryar some dioceses around the world; by the urgency of a new look at the contents and paatores 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.
