Would you encourage young men to become a priest with this pose?

Seriously Father. What is your image of a priest? A poster boy for a clothing company?

The only difference in what you are wearing is that little white tab!

This post is generating a lot of talk on my Facebook Page. Head on over there to join in the discussion if you have a Facebook Account.

The best comment I have seen thus far is this:

"Crass real crass."

This photo reminds me of that excellent article about Priestly Narcissism in the Church, well, which was brought about when the priest started looking at the people rather than talking to the Lord during the Liturgy.  George Weigel also wrote on the similar topic.  Versus populum ring a bell to you guys?

And another great article about this problem with this kind of a priest is this article about
The Emasculation of the Priesthood.


PS:  That logo of the photo company who took the shot..."Great Image", that company is owned by Mrs UNLAWYER....PRO-RH Advocate online.
