“But the main thing I’m left pondering and considering is the number of men aspiring or belonging to the priesthood with good intentions, who for many decades have had to fight against the cultural tide, for the souls of their respective flocks. There are countless priests striving for holiness, who hold the liturgy close to their hearts and who wish to shepherd the faithful closer to the heart of Christ. We must not lose sight of these men who are also, now perhaps more than ever, growing discouraged and weary.”
These words are quoted from a Blog prepared by Brianna Heldt, writer, speaker, and radio show host. She blogs at www.briannaheldt.com, has been a featured guest on BBC Radio, and her work can regularly be found in other online publications as well. A convert to the Catholic Church, Brianna explores topics ranging from faith and social issues to adoption and large family life. She and her husband make their home in Denver, along with their eight children.
NFPC’s editor will make no attempt to improve on Ms. Heldt’s tribute to the wonderful men who devote their lives serving God and their fellow man through the Catholic Priesthood.
