Video: What’s So Great About the Priesthood?

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/15/14

Chris Stefanik reminds us that what defines priesthood is the love of Jesus Christ.

Abuse, greed, sexism—none of it defines the priesthood. The failure of a small percentage of priests shouldn't tarnish the reputation of the hundreds of thousands of good men who have answered God’s call to love and serve. In his latest video, Chris Stefanick reminds us of the value and importance of priests in our world—they are there for the crucial and most sacred moments of our lives. It is a good reminder that priests are human like everyone else, but they also deserve our admiration, compassion, and gratitude.
