"I wish I could tell every priest that I share his pain and joy, whatever it may be, because I love the priesthood passionately.
"No one is more relevant today than a priest who understands his role as the servant of the Word; as one who can give us God under the form of bread and wine.
"We long to hear your voices echoing the call of the one Shepherd you represent so tangibly for us. We need to hear your voices clearly and we need to hear them now... You are the most important people in the Church today."
