Gone Fishing: Notes on Priestly Formation
“The path to independence is obedience. If one would command, one must first learn to obey”
Join Fr. Brendan Kilcoyne for episode 37 of ‘The Brendan Option’ where he discusses the importance of priestly formation.
“An Irish priest should wish to be a ‘Patrician’ priest. A priest to the people who broke the British empire.”
“To be a priest now in Ireland, you will have to be prepared in such a way that you appear before people a fully authentic man… and that means one who has suffered and is suffering. You must make suffering your friend. And you must do it with a sense of humour, and wit, and intelligence.”
