("One Who Prays Is Not Afraid; One Who Prays Is Never Alone"- Benedict XVI)
The model priest of the year of priests was the Cure D’Ars, who was anything but an intellectual. He could read men’s hearts.

**We see here that there is a struggle involved. It is one faced by all Catholics, but it has special significance in the lives of seminary professors because they will touch the minds of our future priests. This purification of reason, avoidance of vain thinking, and openness to truth will all grow in the theologian according to his or her commitment to live in the presence of God.
Definitely a big struggle for vocations out there. But the answer is in commitment and prayer of the priest himself.
Additionally, we must all vow to pray for priests during this Year of the Priest.
