So, I'm asking.
What can prepare someone for this vocation?
More importantly, how can someone prepare to be a good priest?
What qualites, skills and abilities constitute a good (that is to say, effectual) priest?
For those who have experience in this endeavour, let me put it differently.
What has served you in good stead whilst carrying out your duties as a pastor/priest/minister?
If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to an aspiring priest, what would that be?
Inquiring hearts want to know.
P.S. - If, in responding, you would prefer confidentiality, please email me privately.

I have met my match.
Verily, dear readers (and I know all three of you), I have come face to face with the most disturbing and frightening of things - a person who is, in every way possible of measuring, at least my equal if not my better. Indeed, a veritable mirror image of my own self, yet with barely enough difference to make such a doppleganger distinguishable.
Given such a formidable and singular personage, I said the only thing reasonable.
"Be my companion throughout time."
Fortunately, she said yes.
