CWN Editor's Note: “In summary, the formator’s life, his constant human and spiritual growth as a disciple-missionary of Christ and as a priest, sustained and promoted by the grace of God, is undoubtedly the fundamental factor at his disposal to bring effectiveness to his service to seminarians and other priests in their configuration to Christ, Servant and Good Shepherd,” Pope Francis stated in prepared remarks to participants in the course for seminary rectors and formators of Latin America.
