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.
