In Persona Christi: The Catholic Priesthood
The Catholic priesthood comes to us from Jesus Christ. He is the High Priest, the mediator between God and man. Building on this pattern of priesthood from Old Testament times, Jesus chose twelve men to act in His place as priests of the new and everlasting covenant.
This film explores the essential nature and theology of the sacred priesthood, the importance of a deep prayer life, the centrality of the Mass and Eucharistic Adoration, devotion to the Blessed Virgin, priestly fatherhood and celibacy, and the necessity of a missionary zeal.
Commentary and insights are provided by numerous priests, as they reflect on their own calling and consider what it means to act "In Persona Christi". Featuring Bishop Mark Davies, Fr Hugh Allan, Fr Marcus Holden, Fr Andrew Pinsent, Fr John Saward, Fr Lawrence Lew, Fr Paschal Uche, Fr Behruz Raf'at, Fr Toby Lees, and Fr Matt Roche-Saunders.
