Today in the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, we continue our look at “Aids to the Life of Priests.”
Article 19 highlights pastoral studies as an aid to living the priestly life. As such, the Council recommends establishing more avenues for priests to “effectively learn the methods of evangelization.”
