Star Wars adherents know that without the Jedi, there can be “no balance in the Force.” Do Christians, however, understand that without a priest we are equally imperiled? Like the Jedi, priests are formed to overcome the “dark forces” in our world. Further, they nurture and restore the grace to live holy lives. Priests are deeply trained in the arts of philosophy and theology so that we might rightly call them our spiritual father. In fact, priests are so powerful in fighting evil that the devil told St. John Vianney that if there were just three priests like him in all of France, he (the devil) would not be able to enter there!
