Seminarian Casual, the blog by students of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, presents a new series of podcasts each Wednesday where they talk with a guest about everything from the grassroots of their faith to the passions that drive their creativity and enterprises; in short, the things that make them who they are.
Below, SemCasual speaks with Archbishop Charles Chaput, who examines the Catholic priesthood in the 21st century through the same lens used in his recent book, “Strangers in a Strange Land.” He discusses the priesthood with consideration of how it has changed since his own ordination as well as what virtues are considered valuable in a candidate for the priesthood, and whether or not these have changed with time as well.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
