Why do priests need prayers?

Fr. Jim, presiding Mass at the chapel
at the Pauline Books and Media Center, Hawai'i

"Why do priests need special graces from God? They need special graces because they have extraordinary responsibilities before God. They are to be more than ordinarily holy, more generous, more zealous, more patient. In a word, those who are responsible for Christ's presence on earth they are to be, of all people, most Christ-like. They are to be patterns of what Christ wants all of us to be." -Fr. John A. Hardon, SJ
