The Joy of Being a Priest by Cardinal Christoph Schonborn
Audiobooks • 4h 27m
This insightful book on the priesthood is based on a series of six talks that Cardinal Schoenborn addressed to an international group of priests in Ars, the village where the famed St. John Vianney served as pastor. Vianney, known as the Cure of Ars, is the patron of the Year For Priests announced by Pope Benedict XVI. In these talks, the Cardinal summarized the vocation, challenge, and joy of the priesthood, drawing on the life of the Cure of Ars, the writings of St. Therese of Liseux, St. Faustina Kowalska, and many other saints and holy people.
Gathered together in this short but profound volume, these insights by the highly respected theologian and spiritual writer Cardinal Schoenborn will inspire the priest as well as the layman, giving sage counsel to all who are striving for perfection in their vocation. The Cardinal speaks on the vocation to the priesthood; the importance of mercy, prayer, and spiritual combat; the Eucharist; preaching and the mission of the priest; and the importance of Our Lady to priests.
