The Collar and the Priest: Updated

Earlier this afternoon I was reading an article about the importance of the collar within the priesthood. It discussed the writings of John Paul the Great on the priesthood, and was extremely interesting. It brought up points in theology and philosophy that I had never thought of.

Twenty minutes later I had a meeting with our newly ordained parochial vicar in town. During our discussion he brought up how as a priest he is strengthened in his vocation as he wears the collar. He spoke of the people who just approach him purely for the fact that he is a priest of Christ. He was so happy to be a priest.

I’ll post a link to the article in a little while.

Update:

Here’s the link to the aritcle on the Collar

  1. Cool! I was just reading a blog about priests wearing (or not wearing?!) the collar. I am in favor, of course.
