Priests act in persona Christi capitas, which means "in the person of Christ, head of the Church." That's why the priest speaks in the first person at Mass, "This is my body, given up for you." As Pope John Paul II wrote:" The priest offers his humanity to Christ, so that Christ may use him as an instrument of salvation, making him as it were into another Christ." If you are discerning a call to the priesthood, read the articles below and call the vocations office for a confidential conversation.

How do I know God is calling me?
