THE GRACE TO BE A PRIEST
This book represents the fruit of one Dominican's service as a priest of Jesus Christ. For more than 35 years, Romanus Cessario has taught and advised candidates for the priesthood. Father Cessario explains how the vocation to the priesthood comes to a man as both gift and mystery. God chooses priests to serve as both instruments of His will and spiritual fathers for His people. Drawing on the riches of Dominican tradition as well as the general principles of Catholic theology, Fr. Cessario illuminates the nature of the priesthood with insights for priests, seminarians, and laypeople. Paperback. 148 pages.
