There is a correlation between the prayer life of a priest and his ability to function as a priest.

Understatement of the new year!

Amen.

The one thing the article didn't mention was the laity praying for their priests. I can not stress enough praying, by name, for each priest in your (plural your) parish, and in the parish next door to you. This both strengthens the priests and strengthens your own love of the Church.
