From Pope Benedict’s address to Seminarians during his six-day trip to the US in 2008:
"The People of God look to you to be holy priests, on a daily journey of conversion, inspiring in others the desire to enter more deeply into the ecclesial life of believers.
I urge you to deepen your friendship with Jesus the Good Shepherd. Talk heart to heart with him. Reject any temptation to ostentation, careerism, or conceit. Strive for a pattern of life truly marked by charity, chastity and humility, in imitation of Christ, the Eternal High Priest, of whom you are to become living icons.
Dear seminarians, I pray for you daily. Remember that what counts before the Lord is to dwell in his love and to make his love shine forth for others".
In this address from Pope Benedict XVI, he mentions the qualities he sees as imperative to a seminarians spiritual and temporal life, for example; a daily journey of conversion, to strive for a pattern of life truly marked by charity, chastity and humility, in imitation of Christ, the Eternal High Priest, of whom you are to become living icons, etc, etc.
This gives us, Spiritual Mothers, a wonderful guide when offering our prayer intentions for seminarians - and priests. No one could have said it better, concise yet profound and beautiful. Let us pray for our Holy Father as well, as he continues to guide us forward in the true Church.
