Sažetak All the faithful of Christ are invited to the fullness of the Christian life and to the perfection of love. The priests have a special role since their way of life considerably influences the life and the faith of the laity. Therefore, we shall consider the priests as authentic proclaimers of the Gospel, representatives of Godly and human in the world, as men of communion, and witnesses of truth.
The spirituality of the priests stands primarily in friendship with Christ, therefore the priesthood must be deeply rooted in prayer, in order to live and preach the Gospel in an authentic manner. The priest represents the Godly in the world. Nevertheless, he must never lose the sense for human. By loving what is human, he contemplates the source of good, which is in God present in world and men, and he is able to announce it. Priest’s commitment to the truth was always of a crucial importance for a faithful lay person. A priest should know how to read the signs of time and how to respond to them in the spirit of the Gospel. He must be an authentic witness; endowed with transparency, i.e., his life must be a reflection of Christ’s life and a reflection of God’s mercy.
