This evening a dear friend shared with us an incredible DVD “Fishers of Men” a Grassroots Production video distributed by the USCCB to increase vocations to the priesthood. Simply put, it is phenomenal…a powerful and encouraging glimpse into the lives of the “real men” of the priesthood. I am including a small portion, perhaps one of the most riveting scenes in the video. The entire video may be ordered by clicking the link above.
Every Sunday the faithful at my parish kneel to pray an “Our Father”, a “Hail Mary” and a “Glory be…” for a two fold intention: that there may be an increase in vocations and for the priest who will one day, God willing, administer the Last Rites.
This video not only provides encouragement towards the discernment of a vocation, but should be required viewing for every Catholic as a reminder of the heroic and sacrificial nature of the priesthood. God bless and increase the numbers of our holy priests!
