How Many Times a Year Must a Priest Say Mass?

Taken from a book on this topic whose title I don't present have:
All priests are bound to celebrate Mass several times (three or four times at least and on any days) each year. There is no clear reason for assigning any particular days.  This obligation is a grave one, and probably based on divine precept.  It is, of course, highly becoming that every priest should, if possible, celebrate daily, and this is the more important if the faithful wish to receive Holy Communion...

This isn't a very good blog post, because it lacks too many details.

But having said that, it is not required that a priest offer mass daily. His requirement for offering mass will depend greatly upon his pastoral duties.

What IS REQUIRED is that he say the complete Divine Office every day, and this is under pain of Mortal Sin. The priest's main duty is to offer unceasing praise to God, and this precept is satisfied by his saying the office. The neglect of this duty is grave.
