Pope calls for end to "homologous" priesthood

In his catechesis at today's Wednesday audience the Holy Father said:

Consequently it is not rare that the voice of the priest might seem the "voice of one crying in the desert" (Mark 1:3), but precisely in this consists his prophetic force: in not ever being homologated, or homologable to some prevailing culture or mentality, but in showing the unique novelty capable of bringing about an authentic and profound renewal of man, namely that Christ is the Living One, and the nearby God, the God who operates in the life and for the life of the world and gives us truth, the way to live."

That might be a rather radical demand the Pope is making. In the US there may be a lot of clerics who excel in management and PR - but differ little from their secular counterparts - apart from the costume they wear. I'd love to see it happen.

Thank you for visiting.
