'The joy of being a priest'

Making a retreat is a time-honored Catholic tradition, and priests around the world are doing just that at a special gathering in Ars, France, home of their patron, St. John Vianney.

More than 1,200 priests from 75 countries are reflecting on the theme “The joy of being a priest: Consecrated for the salvation of the world” through Oct. 6, with Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna giving his reflections during the retreat. Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley of Boston will be among the celebrants at daily Mass during the event.
