What words might you use to describe the priesthood? Priests often describe their own lives as happy, bold, rebellious, exciting, studious, Spirit-filled, and love-oriented. While these adjectives are certainly accurate, the priesthood must also be described as heroic, for priests die to themselves and give their lives utterly to Christ and His people. In this episode of the Word on Fire Show, Bishop Barron explains the radical self-gift demanded by the priesthood as well as the lavish graces God pours back into the life of each priest. The listener question asks how parents might nurture religious vocations in their children.
