Priests - What Lies Ahead?
Fr. Carlos Granados
Through interviews, four prominent Church leaders reflect on the mission of the Catholic priest in the modern world. They discuss how changes in the Church and the societies in which Catholics live present priests with both challenges and opportunities to be teachers, fathers, physicians, and shepherds in imitation of Jesus Christ.
In order to better understand these four images, four priests—Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archbishop Luis Ladaria, Cardinal George Pell, and Msgr. Livio Melina— present their personal insights on the meaning and the future of the priestly vocation.
Within the framework of an extended conversation with Father Carlos Granados, they offer vivid, straightforward testimonies of their own experiences while raising and answering the major questions about the priesthood today.
