The priests of yesterday were formed in a religious and patriarchal mold. In addition, they also had a strong sense of entitlement.
In the secularized world of today, however, problems are more related to the social sciences, management and technology. Our social situation is also more pluralistic and democratic than in earlier times.
No wonder that many priests find themselves out of their depth in relating to the wider public. Their training has been too abstract and one-sided.
