The Joy Of Being A Priest  - Downloadable Audio File
 

 

This insightful book on the priesthood is based on a series of six talks that Cardinal Schönborn addressed to an international group of priests in Ars, the village where the famed St. John Vianney served as pastor. Vianney, known as the Curé 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 Curé of Ars, the writings of St. Thérèse 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 Schönborn 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.

"St. John Vianney emphasized the indispensable role of the priest when he said, ‘A good pastor, a pastor according to the heart of God, is the greatest treasure that the good Lord can give to a parish, and is one of the most precious gifts of divine mercy.’ Let us pray that through the intercession of St. John Vianney, God will give holy priests to his Church and will increase in the faithful the desire to sustain and help them in their ministry."
—Pope Benedict XVI
