Let them arrange their homes so that they might not appear unapproachable to anyone, lest anyone, even the most humble, fear to visit them. The spiritual training should be closely connected with the doctrinal and pastoral, and, with the special help of the spiritual director, should be imparted in such a way that the students might learn to live in an intimate and unceasing union with the Father through His Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. Pro singularum regionum condicionibus Episcoporum pariter erit decernere de protrahenda aetate a iure communi in praesenti pro sacris ordinibus expostulata necnon deliberare de opportunitate statuendi ut alumni, expleto cursu theologico, per congruum tempus diaconalem exerceant ordinem, antequam ad sacerdotium promoveantur.

Pastoral charity, therefore, urges priests, as they operate in the framework of this union, to dedicate their own will by obedience to the service of God and their fellow men. The duty of fostering vocations pertains to the whole Christian community, which should exercise it above all by a fully Christian life. In building the Christian community, priests are never to put themselves at the service of some human faction of ideology, but, as heralds of the Gospel and shepherds of the Church, they are to spend themselves for the spiritual growth of the Body of Christ. Ignatius Martyr, Trall. With equal concern the seeds of vocations among adolescents and young men are also to be fostered in those special institutes which, in accord with the local circumstances, serve the purpose of a minor seminary as well as among those who are trained in other schools or by other educational means. Mk
Because of the very unity of the Catholic priesthood this priestly formation is necessary for all priests, diocesan and religious and of every rite. Aided by suitable safeguards, both divine and human, let them learn to integrate their renunciation of marriage in such a way that they may suffer in their lives and work not only no harm from celibacy but rather acquire a deeper mastery of soul and body and a fuller maturity, and more perfectly receive the blessedness spoken of in the Gospel. For above all upon the bishops rests the heavy responsibility for the sanctity of their priests. To enable them to foster union with Christ in all circumstances of life, priests, in addition to the meaningful carrying out of their ministry, have at their disposal the means both common and particular, new and old, which the Holy Spirit has never ceased to raise up among the People of God and which the Church recommends and in fact sometimes commands  for the sanctification of her members. VII PL 83, It is our desire to give recognition to such institutions so that modern circumstances and necessities might better be provided for.

Summa Theol. Apostolicam actuositatem Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity : Here the Bishops offered some advice to encourage and guide lay people in their Christian service.

In regard to the apostolate for evangelizing and sanctifying men, the laity must be specially formed. We should always keep before our eyes the example of the faithful of the early Church in Jerusalem, who "held all things in common" Acts 4;32 "and distribution was made to each according to each one's need" Acts Jerome, Epistles, 58, 7 PL 22, Ignatius Martyr, Smyrn.
Sedes Sapientiae pro Religiosis. But since it is necessary for the students to learn the art of exercising the apostolate not only theoretically but also practically, and to be able to act both on their own responsibility and in harmonious conjunction with others, they should be initiated into pastoral work, both during their course of studies and also during the time of vacations, by opportune practical projects.
They must coax their people on to an ever more perfect and constant spirit of prayer for every grace and need. Since, however, there is common cause between the captain of a ship and the sailors, 64 let all Christian people be taught that it is their duty to cooperate in one way or another, by constant prayer and other means at their disposal, 65 that the Church will always have a sufficient number of priests to carry out her divine mission.
Perfect and perpetual continence for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven, commended by Christ the Lord 33 and through the course of time as well as in our own days freely accepted and observed in a praiseworthy manner by many of the faithful, is held by the Church to be of great value in a special manner for the priestly life.
Christ, whom the Father sanctified, consecrated and sent into the world, 3 "gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity and cleanse for himself an acceptable people, pursuing good works" Ttand thus through suffering entered into his glory.
We are not priests for our own sake, and our sanctification is closely linked to that of our people, our anointing to their anointing," he said, adding priests should be "authoritative, not authoritarian; firm, but not hard; joyful, but not superficial In a special way, catechumens and the newly-baptized who must be educated gradually to know and to live the Christian life are entrusted to his care.

It proclaims the extreme importance of priestly. Opatam totius, the Decree on Training of Priests, opens with the principle that priestly training must always answer the pastoral requirements of the particular area in which the ministry is to be exercised”, and we are inclined to take it for granted that because this is so obviously true it was in fact always done, or at least attempted.
