The Parish Priest: Pastor and Leader

An new Instruction, The Priest, Pastor and Leader of the Parish Community, has been published by the Congregation for the Clergy. According to Cardinal Darío Castrillón Hoyos, prefect of the Congregation, "the principal objective of this Instruction is to highlight the identity of the pastor as sacramental leader, who from the parish encourages and leads the faithful to Christ, the Way to the Father" (quoted in this Zenit story).
