Click Here to view the Video: What a Catholic Priest does every day.  Many people who are not Catholic don't understand the life of a priest. And the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church tainted the view that some have of the priesthood. This video is a simple primer of how a priest—particularly a diocesan priest—spends his time and energy on a daily basis. It's always helpful to have a reminder of just what the priest does and is called to do by God.He brings Jesus Christ to the people, primarily through the sacraments and the celebration of the Mass, as well as through various kinds of service. If there's someone in your life who doesn't understand what a priest does, you might start by sharing this video.
