'Do You Appreciate your Priest? Spanish Bishop Composes Test.

Zenit today reports as follows:

"The Year for Priests isn't just an internal celebration among the clergy, but rather an opportunity for all the faithful to assess their appreciation for the priesthood, says Bishop Jose Ignacio Munilla of Palencia.

'Do we appreciate the priesthood and love our priests?' the bishop asked in a posting on the website of his diocese.

To answer this question, the bishop composed ..."with a bit of humour" ... the following test titled "Priestly Appreciation". The test is complete with instructions to evaluate your answers and your level of appreciation for the priesthood."

Please do click the Zenit link in sidebar and take the test. Yes, there is humour but it is not frivolous and 'Many a true word is spoken in jest.'

Thank you Bishop Munilla.


  1. Aloha Jane, I posted that article also the Spiritual Moms Apostolate. I don't remember if I ever shared our link with you.

  2. Jane:

    Thank you so much for this. I know it's maybe composed with a bit of humour, but it's also very true and gave me pause.

  4. Sorry, typos galore.

    Just saying that I loved the test and feel Bishop Munilla deserves our prayers. What an inspiration he must be to his people. Would that every bishop spoke like this.
