A Priest's Role

Father Gzergorz Ciszek, ordained this past June, clearly pays careful attention to detail and celebrates the Mass with great reverence. He is one of a new breed of young priests who humbly recognizes the beauty, solemnity, and uniqueness of the liturgy and his very important role in it. I had the pleasure of meeting him this past summer at the Sacred Music Colloquium.

The caption to this video reads:

Experience the beauty and the simplicity of the Mass. Enter into the Liturgy of the Catholic Church through different perspectives the camera can offer. Follow the priest in the Mystery of the Mass.

Does this video serve its intended purpose of drawing the viewer into an understanding of the role of the priest in the Mass? Does it successfully engage its audience?
