Excellent video about the priesthood

This is a great video about the priesthood. This is the sort of message that needs to get out to the young men in the Church today!

I found it somewhat slanted toward ritual and vestments. Anyone else?

Anonymous, could you provide some examples? They don't SPEAK about vestments terribly much, although certainly the VIDEO portion shows priests and seminarians in clerical attire (as is proper to them).

Emphasis on the rituals a priest performs is important. A priest is not a "social worker" or "community president". He is a priest of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The ritual of vesting for Mass (including the vesting prayers), which may have been left by the wayside since Vatican II, is a very meaningful ritual, a daily reminder of WHO the priest is and WHAT he is called to.

Could you elaborate on your comments?
