I thought some of things the Holy Father had to say to seminarians were incedibly beautiful. I have had a number of seminarians and people thinking of priesthood coming to see me recently. What Pope Benedict says, I wish I had said to them.
As always he calls for interiority: prayer and study. Again, as he told children here in the England, in Spain he tells seminarians, "Be saints".
He concludes his homily by saying, "Approach the priesthood only if you are firmly convinced that God is calling you to be his ministers, and if you are completely determined to exercise it in obedience to the Church’s precepts".
Later today he spent an hour hearing confessions Rocco Palmo captioned this picture as "Pope in a Box". I was amused by that.
