Many people who are not Catholic don't understand the life of a priest. And the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church tainted the view that some have of the priesthood. This video is a simple primer of how a priest—particularly a diocesan priest—spends his time and energy on a daily basis. It's always helpful to have a reminder of just what the priest does and is called to do by God.

If there's someone in your life who doesn't understand what a priest does, you might start by sharing this video.
