PRESENTATION TOPIC

Imitate What You Celebrate: Liturgy and Priestly Identity

Priests today are invited to develop their spiritual lives from many great Catholic traditions, both ancient and modern. From monastic to ecological, spiritualities abound which promise unique ways to follow Christ and minister to his people. But is it possible that the Liturgy itself is already a school of spirituality for the priest? This talk will investigate how the celebration of the Roman Rite can orient both the spirituality and ministry of the priest, as well as help to define his identity in modern life.
