Pope tells future priests not to be afraid to denounce evil By CIIDY WOODEN Catholic News Service YONKERS, N.Y. (CNS) -- The Catholic Church is looking for courageous men, Pope John Paul II said. Speaking to seminarians Oct. 6 at St. Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, the pope said the church's priests must be strong in their faith and unafraid of denouncing evil. "You need courage to follow Christ, especially when you recognize that so much of our dominant culture is a culture of flight from God, a culture which displays a not-so-hidden contempt for human life, be- ginning with the lives of the unborn, and extending to con- tempt for the frail and elderly," the pope said. "If you are to become priests, it will be for the purpose -- above all other purposes -- of proclaiming the Word of God and feeding God's people with the body and blood of Christ," he said.

Pope John Paul said he did not want to discourage the can- didates for priesthood but wanted to discuss serious mat- ters with them as a friend. "If there is one challenge fac- ing the church and her priests today, it is the challenge of transmitting the Christian message whole and entire, without letting it be emptied of its substance," the pope said. "The Gospel cannot be re- duced to mere human wisdom," he said. "Salvation lies not in clever human words or schemes, but in the cross and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ." The seminary, the pope said, is the place where candidates for the priesthood must learn "the wisdom of the cross"-- not what would qualify as wis- dom in the world. The words they speak as priests must be words inspired by the Holy Spirit and addressed to spiri- tualneeds, hesaid.
