Understanding is different and beyond knowledge, This computer I am working with may have knowledge like any of us or even more but surely it cannot understand. understanding is a uniquely human activity that deals primarily not with information but with that elusive reality which we call meaning. Let us be reminded that the classic priestly formation is helping seminarians develop the ability to think and decide for themselves, to correctly understand themselves and the meaning of events in the light of faith; and how to wisely order their lives according to a proper hierarchy of values. This correct understanding leads to right sense of perspective and right sense of proportion. Priestly life is not a way to ignore, sublimate, reject, disown and anesthetize desire, rather it is a way to feel and expand human desire to such an extent  that it drives us toward something greater than ourselves.
