The concern of the Synod of Bishops and its discussion focused on the increase of vocations to the priesthood and the pastorres of candidates in an attempt to help them come to know and follow Jesus – as they prepare to be ordained and to live the sacrament of holy orders, which configures them to Christ the pastorew and shepherd, the servant and spouse of the Church.
We can now see the essential dimension of the Christian vocation: This is particularly reflected in that outlook on human sexuality according to which sexuality’s dignity in service to communion and to the reciprocal donation between persons becomes degraded and thereby reduced to nothing more than a consumer good.
So there shall be one flock, one shepherd” Jn. Therefore, since every priest in his own way oastores the person of Christ himself, he is endowed with a special grace.
This “mystery” seeks expression in the priestly life. Even today Christ makes these words which he proclaimed in the synagogue of Nazareth echo in our priestly hearts.
At the conclusion of the synod, I said apstores in the face of a crisis of priestly vocations “the first answer which the Church gives lies in a total act of faith in the Holy Spirit.
They have become living instruments of Christ the eternal priest, so that through the ages they, can accomplish his wonderful work of reuniting the whole human race with heavenly power. In the case of some young people a distorted sense of freedom lies at the root of these tendencies. The Church must never cease to pray to the Lord of the harvest that he send laborers into his harvest, daboo. This ecclesial dimension takes on special forms, purposes and meanings in the spiritual life of the priest by virtue of his vvobis relation to the Church, always as a result of his configuration to Christ the head and shepherd, his ordained ministry and his pastoral charity.
In this way tension and unrest are introduced into everyday life, deeply disturbing the lives of people and of whole communities. First of all, indeed in a prevenient and decisive way, comes the free and gracious intervention of God who calls.
The more they do so, the more humbly and perseveringly priests should join with the Church in praying for the grace of fidelity. The Spirit of the Lord anointed Christ and sent him forth to announce the Gospel cf.
May the Lord give us the strength to love you to the extent of dying for you, either in fact or in desire aut effectu aut affectu. By the very fact that “the lack of priests is certainly a sad thing for any Church,” 92 pastoral work for vocations needs especially today, to be taken up rescargar a new vigor and more decisive commitment by all the members of the Church, in the awareness that it is not a secondary or marginal matter, or the business of one group vkbis, as if it were but a “part,” no matter how important, of the entire pastoral work of the Church.
This interpretation is a work which is done in the light and strength provided by the vobiz and living Gospel, which is Jesus Christ, and in virtue of the gift of the Paetores Spirit. He who laid down his life for his sheep, who died for his flock, he is risen, alleluia.

And just as “the Son can do nothing of his own accord” Jn. Furthermore, precisely because within the Church’s life the priest is a man of communion, in his relations with all people he decargar be a man of mission and dialogue.
I now mention some comments taken from the synod fathers’ analysis of the situation dscargar fully aware that the great variety of socio – cultural and ecclesial circumstances in different countries limits by necessity our treatment to only the most evident and widespread phenomena, particularly those relating descaragr the question of education and priestly formation.
And he should not disdain being such; I say it once again, he should not disdain being the servant of many, because the Lord of Lords did not disdain to make himself our servant. The pastorss shares in Christ’s consecration and mission in a specific and authoritative way, through the sacrament of holy orders, by virtue of which he is configured in his being to Jesus Christ, head and shepherd, and shares in the mission of “preaching the good news to the poor” in the name and person of Christ himself.
Lay people themselves had asked that priests commit themselves to their formation so that they, the laity, could be suitably helped to fulfill their role in the ecclesial mission which is shared by all.
Pastoral charity, which has its specific source in the sacrament of holy orders, finds its full expression and its supreme nourishment in the Eucharist. In this sense, “incardination” cannot be confined to a purely juridical bond, but also involves a set of attitudes as well as spiritual and pastoral decisions which help to fill out the specific features of the priestly vocation.
Like all Christians they have already received in descargad consecration of baptism the sign and gift of their great calling and grace which enables and obliges them even in the midst of human weakness to seek perfection cf. We recall the celebrated words of St.
God always calls his priests from specific human and ecclesial contexts, which inevitably influence them; and to these same contexts the priest is sent for the service of Christ’s Gospel. To remain faithful to the grace received!
Pastores Dabo Vobis (March 15, ) | John Paul II
As the author of the letter to the Hebrews writes, Jesus, being a man like us and at the same time the only begotten Son of God, is in his very being the perfect mediator between the Father and humanity cf. And when the chief Shepherd is manifested you will obtain the unfading crown of glory” 1 Pt.
He gathers and protects them. Augustine also alludes to this specific vocation when, after the words “For you I am a bishop, with you I am a Christian, he goes on to say: Christ gives the dignity of a royal priesthood to the adbo he has made his own.
In particular, the Spirit reveals to us and communicates the fundamental desccargar which the Father addresses to everyone from all eternity: In the Church’s very name, ecclesia, we find its deep vocational aspect, for the Church is a “convocation,” an assembly of those who have been pasores Every Christian vocation finds its foundation in the gratuitous and prevenient choice made by the Father “who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.
