If you are seriously thinking
of the priesthood, the ques-
tion becomes not "what" but
Who can allow you to utilize
your own innate talents?
Who is muost attuned to our
times? Who can offer the
most freedom in your work?
The answer is the Paulists.
Their goal is to meet the
needs of all God's people as
they arise in each era and
each age. The Paulist tries
to make Christ, His teach-
ings and His Church more
understandable to those he
can reach.
In our recent Renewal Chap-
ter we established the guide-
lines by which a Paulist
seminarian and priest would
operate in these changing
times. A summary of these
renewal principles is avail-
able to those who question
"whether a priest can really
be with it today."

Paulist spirit, send for an
