Melanie and I just finished watching the new vocations video from the USCCB called “Fishers of Men.” I know, I know, can anything good come from the USCCB? (Someone once asked if anything good can come from Nazareth.)
But this is good. Part of the reason may be that the filmmakers told the bishops, “You be bishops, and let us be the filmmakers.” I have to say it was most impressive. (You can watch it online at the link above or directly at this link.)
The film has high production values and the director knows his audience. It’s made for young men so it’s fast-paced, there’s nothing that drags. There’s high energy throughout. It also offers a vision of the priesthood that appeals to any red-blooded American man. It’s a calling to be a hero, to face a challenge.
