“There is no more important work in the church today than calling and forming men for the priesthood.
“Through our prayers and through our ministries, we are here to make true men of God — in whom the men and women of our time can see Jesus Christ. Men who preach the Gospel with their lives. Men who live the mystery they celebrate at the altar. Who make themselves a total gift. For the love of God and the love of souls. Men who present their bodies as a holy and living sacrifice to God.”
— From “The world awaits holy priests” by Archbishop José H. Gomez
