Why the Bishops hate Latin
#4
After reading the book "Diary of a Country Priest" I have to say priests today have it easy. Even if this book was fiction it pretty accurately depicted the life of a priest in the late 1800s. This priest was dying of cancer (although he didn't know it at the time) but he was sick and he would walk miles and miles to take care of his flock. Towards the end, he was so bad that he passed out on a parishioners doorstep. He was very worried because he liked his wine and he was worried that the family would see him passed out and smell the alcohol on his breath and he would cause scandal.

Also this priest was being calumniated against by this girl because he was simply trying to save her soul.

But the point is priests back in the "good old days" didn't have days off, they didn't go on vacations, they were priests all the time and they were there for their flock.

Now you can't even get priests to go and give people the sacrament of Extreme Unction.
