Formation Conference of Card. Lazzaro You Heung-Sik
As part of our formation program we had the conference “What Church? What Priest? What Formation?” by Card. Lazzaro You Heung-Sik, prefect of the Dicastery for the Clergy.
Here is an extract of his words:
1) What Church?
2) What priest (for this Church)?
3) What formation (for this priesthood for this Church)?
Actually, all three have the same answer: the Church of Christ is fundamentally mystery, communion and mission. Having stated these three ecclesiological principles, it follows that the appropriate priest for this Church is the one who lives these three principles, and therefore the appropriate formation will be the one that promotes these same three principles.”
