In keeping with the ongoing celebration
of the Year of the Priest, the Holy
Father delivered the following message
for the 47th World Day of Prayer for

“A fundamental element, one which can be
seen in every vocation to the priesthood and
the consecrated life, is friendship with Christ.
Jesus lived in constant union with the Father
and this is what made the disciples eager to
have the same experience; from him they
learned to live in communion and unceasing
dialogue with God. If the priest is a “man of God”, one who belongs to God and helps others to
know and love him, he cannot fail to cultivate
a deep intimacy with God, abiding in his love
and making space to hear his Word. Prayer is
the first form of witness which awakens vocations. Like the Apostle Andrew, who tells his brother
that he has come to know the Master, so to,
anyone who wants to be a disciple and witness
of Christ must have “seen” Him personally, come
to know Him, and learned to love Him and to
abide with Him.
