Year for Priests

I have been reflecting on the Priesthood a lot during these last few days; one of my religious brothers celebrated his 25th anniversary of ordination last Tuesday, today is my 4th anniversary of ordination, Saturday two of our brethren are being ordained, and tomorrow begins the "Year for Priests" as designated by our holy father, Pope Benedict XVI. The year for priests is designed to call priests to greater holiness and to encourage people to pray for priests and to pray for vocations to the priesthood.
