Father Thomas Acklin’s analysis of present-day challenges to authentic priestly life and ministry is based on solid scriptural and Christian anthropological foundations, and is reflective of the great insights of Pope John Paul II.
A true understanding and appreciation of the unchanging heart of the priesthood as a manifestation of the self-giving life and ministry of Christ the Servant and Priest will attract priestly vocations, help priestly renewal, and ultimately invigorate the Church.
The book contains candid descriptions of the priesthood. A must read for all priests seeking personal holiness and effectiveness in ministry.
