The priest is above all a man of prayer. As an ordained representative of Christ, the p​riest's most important prayer is to represent the sacrifice of Jesus during Holy Mass.

His parish relies on him to offer a sacrifice "holy and acceptable to God." Throughout the week, too, at parish meetings and community functions, he is often asked: "Father, will you lead us in prayer?" He is seen as a man accustomed to speaking with God.​
