One thing that will most likely never cease to surprise me is how very often - and in how many different ways - people view priests as somehow more than human (and not in a theological way).
One day last week I mentioned something about one of my "best friends" to one of the wrestlers. It caught him off guard.
He asked, "You have a best friend?" "Of course," I answered.
Let's not forget that priests have and need friends like everyone else. Indeed, I should be very concerned about a priest who seems to have no friends.
