A priest is an ordinary man called by God to "an amazing vocation of service," Fr John Horn said. "Rather than put a priest on a pedestal, it's the opposite. The more a priest serves, the more people are invited to see their own call of holiness, that what God does with our ordinariness is awesome and beautiful." (Fr Horn is president-rector of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary - St Louis, MO)
