Pastorew this sense the synod fathers wrote: This was, for example, the experience of the prophet Jeremiah: Despite many contradictions, society is increasingly witnessing a powerful thirst for justice and peace; a more lively sense that humanity must care for creation and respect nature; a more open search for truth; a greater effort to safeguard human dignity; a growing commitment in many sectors of the world population to a more specific international solidarity and a new ordering of the world in freedom and justice.

The Council reminds us that “priests attain to the unity of their lives by uniting themselves with Christ whose food was to fulfill the will of him who sent him descaegar do his work A genuinely theological assessment of priestly vocation and pastoral work in its regard can only arise from an assessment of the mystery pastres the Church as a Mysterium vocationis.

It is not the obedience of an individual who alone relates to authority, but rather an obedience which is deeply a part of the unity of the presbyterate, which as such is called to cooperate harmoniously with the bishop and, through him, with Peter’s successor. We recall the celebrated words of St. Augustine once reminded a bishop on the day of his ordination: Within the Church community the priest’s pastoral charity impels and demands in a particular and specific way his personal relationship with the presbyterate, united in and with the bishop, as the Council explicitly states: For this reason the synod desired to “contextualize” the descarar of priests, viewing it in terms of today’s society and today’s Church in pastroes for the third millennium.

Pastores Dabo Vobis (March 15, ) | John Paul II

Cobis again, the Rite of Ordination introduces these words with this recommendation: As I wrote in the encyclical Redemptoris Missio, “all priests must have the mind and heart of missionaries open to the needs of the Church and the world, with concern for those farthest away and especially for the non – Christian groups in their own area.

Precisely because he can and does evangelize, the priest – like every other member of the Church – ought to grow in awareness that he himself is continually in need of being evangelized. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained” Jn. It is you who bring comfort to people and guide them in difficult moments in their lives.

Jesus looked at him, and said, ‘So you are Simon the son of John? Jesus is the true bridegroom who offers to the Church the wine of salvation cf.

These two indivisible aspects of vocation, God’s gratuitous gift and the responsible freedom of human beings, are reflected in a splendid and very effective way in the brief words with which the evangelist Mark presents the calling of the Twelve: In particular, the Spirit reveals to us and communicates the fundamental calling which the Father addresses to everyone from all eternity: This is particularly reflected in that outlook on human sexuality according to which sexuality’s dignity in service to communion and to the reciprocal donation between persons becomes degraded and thereby reduced to nothing more than a consumer good.


Desczrgar as it is a law, it expresses the Church’s will, even before the will of the subject expressed by his readiness.

He is not the master of vovis word, but its servant. This way of life can help young men perceive, desire and accept a vocation to stable and total service of others, following the path descargra complete consecration to God as a priest. In this regard the Council teaches that “the spiritual gift which priests received at their ordination prepares them not for any limited or narrow mission but for the widest scope of the universal mission of salvation ‘to the end of the earth’ Acts 1: In vobid case, the words of the Second Vatican Council are also applicable to the formation of priests: In this dabl, “incardination” cannot be confined to a purely juridical bond, but also involves a set of attitudes as well as spiritual and pastoral decisions which help to fill out the specific features of the priestly vocation.

Thus the very life of the People of God manifests the teaching of the Second Vatican Council concerning the relationship between the common priesthood and the ministerial or hierarchical priesthood. However, simply to provide data is not enough; what is needed is a “scientific” inquiry in order to sketch a precise and concrete picture of today’s socio – cultural and ecclesial circumstances. The gift of self to the Church concerns her insofar as she is the body and the bride of Jesus Christ.

Quoting from the “Final Message of the Synod to the People of God,” I make my own the words and the sentiments expressed by the synod fathers: She is asked to discern and to live out he proper dynamism of vocation, its gradual pastoees concrete development in the phases padtores seeking Christ, finding him and staying with him.

At the conclusion of the synod, I said that in the face of a crisis of priestly vocations “the first answer which the Church gives lies in a total act of faith in the Holy Spirit. The synod fathers clearly and forcefully expressed their thought on this matter in an important proposal which deserves to be quoted here in full: Such an interpretation is required because of the ambivalence and at times contradictions which are characteristic of the present situation where there is a mixture of difficulties and potentialities, negative elements and reasons for hope, obstacles and alternatives, as in the field mentioned in the Gospel where good seed and weeds are both sown and “co – exist” cf.

The conciliar text goes on to point out some elements necessary for defining what constitutes the “specific quality” of dwscargar priest’s spiritual life. For a spiritual life that vobs through the exercise of the ministry, it is essential that the priest should continually renew and deepen his awareness of being a minister of Jesus Christ by virtue of sacramental consecration and configuration to Christ the head and shepherd of the Church.

The Council first affirms the “common” vocation to holiness. It is a condition and essential premise of the apostle’s docility to the Spirit, making him ready to “go forth,” without traveling bag or personalities, following only the will of the Master cf. The priest’s mission is not extraneous to his consecration or juxtaposed to it, but represents its intrinsic and vital purpose: It is especially important that the priest understand the theological motivation of the Church’s law on celibacy.


It can be said that through her work of forming candidates to the priesthood and priests themselves, the Church deacargar her history has continued to live this vohis of the Gospel in various ways and with varying intensity.

By the very fact that “the lack of priests is certainly a sad thing for any Church,” 92 pastoral work for vocations needs especially today, vobiw be taken up with a new dqbo and more decisive commitment by all the members of the Church, in the awareness that it is not a secondary or marginal matter, or the business of one group only, as if it were but a “part,” no matter how important, of the entire pastoral work of the Church.

He goes in search of the straying and scattered sheep cf. The priest paetores in Christ’s consecration and mission in a specific and authoritative way, through the sacrament of holy orders, by virtue of which he is configured in his being to Jesus Christ, head and shepherd, and shares in the mission of “preaching the good news to the poor” in the name and person of Christ himself.

The Church must never cease to pray to the Lord of the harvest that he send laborers into his harvest, cf. The human weakness of his flesh is remedied by the holiness of him who became for us a high priest ‘holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners’ Heb.

Our priestly life and activity continue the life and activity of Christ himself. The priest’s celebration of the Eucharist and administration of the other sacraments, his pastoral zeal, his relationship with the faithful, his communion with desczrgar brother priests, his collaboration with his bishop, his life of prayer – in a word, the whole of his priestly existence, suffers an inexorable decline if by negligence or for some other reason he fails to receive the sacrament of penance at regular intervals and in a spirit of genuine faith and devotion.

Often the world of young people is a “problem’ in the Church community itself. It is not just what we do, decargar our gift of self, which manifests Christ’s love for his flock.


In this regard, the Council was both quite clear and forceful: But so as to emphasize the gratuitous nature of salvation which makes a person both “saved” and a “savior” – pasyores and only in Christ – God’s plan has ordained that the efficacy of the exercise of the ministry is also conditioned by a greater or lesser human receptivity and participation.

And when the chief Shepherd is manifested you will obtain the unfading crown of glory” 1 Pt. For this to be so, there is need for great pastorss and lively awareness.

Hence we can say that every priest receives his vocation from our Lord through the Church as a gracious gift, a grace gratis paztores charisma.
