The passion of priesthood: Why priests need to demonstrate joy
For better or worse, people’s experience of the Catholic Church often hinges on the attitudes of their local priest.
In our pampered society, Christianity is not an easy sell. Try offering today’s Christians honor, responsibility, generosity, forgiveness. Try offering forgiveness to kids who've been told, even in Catholic schools, guilt trips are bad for you. Try offering resurrection as a value to people who don't believe they will ever die.
