On the Priesthood
Thanks to Google News Alerts, I was pointed to Orrologion, which in turn directed me to Orthodoxy Today, and an article by Fr. Aris Metrakos on the priesthood. Even though you can tell he writes from the Eastern perspective, he really hits one out of the ballpark. He describes the priesthood in four terms/arenas, each building upon the other: Science, Craft, Art and Gift of the Spirit. Really moving stuff, for men thinking about the seminary, for the fellas there, for us young priests and for those who have been at it a while.
