Pastors are great until they get busy and then they are not. Developing a sincere relationship with your average Pastor today is just not done in a church of 500+ people. As well as a consistency of belief! If I’m a baseball player who travels from town to town, I need an umpire who follows the same rules so I have God given clarity. Every Catholic Priest, worldwide, trained and anointed the same. God given clarity. My priest knows my name, knows my most intimate of thoughts and actions and is right there at my bedside as I pass from this life unto the next. My priest sacrifices a normal life for his flock in terms of our most valuable asset, TIME !! Pastors are great until not, then a Priest is better.
