Care for our priests

According to my sampling of Asian laity-clergy opinions, priests are often viewed distantly, as little more than Sacrament-dispensing zombies. Most survey participants said priests get drained physically and spiritually in the anonymity of today's ecclesial supermarkets. Some laypeople said that when priests get trapped between cynical laity and unsympathetic superiors, commitment wanes into careerism. Unsurprisingly, both lay and priest respondents regard personal holiness as central for the life and witness of those who "left everything and followed" Jesus - Hector Welgampola
