Needed: Priests with spiritual muscle

That's what Archbishop Mauro Piacenza, secretary for the Congregation for Clergy, told journalists in Rome last week as he reflected on the fruits of the Year for Priests, which runs until June 2010.

Such interior strength can be obtained through "prayer, the interior life and true motivation."

In his talk, the archbishop gave a couple of examples of people whom priests could use as role models as they do their heavy lifting: St. John Vianney, the Cure D'Ars, and St. Therese of Lisieux.
