You have only to join a gathering of priests anywhere, or visit a seminary, to realise that there is no such thing as one single ‘priestly type’. Priests are people as varied as any other group, widely different in interests, temperament and background. This is one of the riches of the priesthood. No priest can in practice be all things to all people: but together they do much better! So do not worry if you are not very much like some other priests you know. You may think you are an unlikely person to be a priest, but so are most priests! The apostles themselves were a motley bunch. What mattered was that Jesus chose them, and they said ‘Yes’.
