Last 19 June, on the occasion of the Latin solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Pope Benedict XVI declared a Year for Priests. Throughout the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe, thousands of men have generously responded to the Lords call to serve him and his church as priests.
