New Video on Priesthood Starring Cardinal Seán O’Malley Now Available Online at CatholicTV.com
How well do Catholics really know their priests? A new 10-minute video on the priesthood at CatholicTV.com gives Catholics a detailed look at priests and the priesthood. The video includes introductory remarks and appreciation of the priesthood by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, lay people and other priests as well. One priest from the video talks about how he once baptized a tiny newborn baby in the palm of his hand using a single drop of water. Another priest mentions how he once was seriously ill and how his parishioners welcomed him back warmly.
The video can be seen now by visiting http://www.priest2009.com/
CatholicTV is a nationally-broadcasted television network headquartered near Boston. CatholicTV streams its broadcast simultaneously, 24 hours a day at www.CatholicTV.com
This new video features priests talking about what sustains them, what challenges they face, and even about their hopes. One newly-ordained priest in the video said “I hope when I approach my death, the Lord will tell me “come, my good and faithful servant, you have been faithful with what I entrusted to you, enter into your master’s joy”.
