Contact with people in all strata of society is at once the need, desire, mission, and experience of every priest. Skill and ease in relating to others, communicating and sharing with them, is essential to the priestly vocation. Sensitivity to the expressed and unexpressed desires and needs of others, a deepening sense of the oneness of humankind, together with a habit of charity, tact, and love for God and neighbor, are the elements of the priestly contact.
