5. Benedict XVI: “The Role of Priests is Irreplaceable”

Pope Benedict XVI received some prelates from Brazil on 17 September at Castelgandolfo, the Pope’s summer residence.

“Priests must distance themselves from politics (partisan) in order to favour the unity and communion of all the faithful, thus becoming a point of reference for everyone”.

“The function of the clergy is essential and irreplaceable in announcing the word and Celebrating the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist…For this reason it is vital to ask the Lord to send workers for his harvest; and it is necessary that priests express joy in their faithfulness to their identity”.
