Priest Academy

I am not sure how it came to her attention, but zero sent the following:

You and your fellow bloggers may be interested in http://www.pretres-academy.com/, a French internet reality show launched by the diocese of Besancon in eastern France. It marks the first ordination of a local priest in three years. The first two episodes having go 150 000 hits apparently.
I have just watched Episode 1, and thought it raised some interesting questions about the mission of the priest. I suspect that viewers will have different opinions on the fact, for example, that two out of the three featured clerics are shown dressed in "civvies". Another question is whether or not the programme offers a vision of priesthood that will inspire vocations.

Do look at episode 4, which is perhaps the best of the four. Episode 3 is probably not for those of a liturgically sensitive disposition ....
