In this book, Father Dominic Grassi, an urban priest, natural storyteller, and author of the popular Bumping into God books, reflects on his vocation and recalls the reasons he became a priest. Through poignant and often humorous recollections from his thirty years in his vocation, Grassi celebrates the special moments of grace he has witnessed and the special people who have touched his life. Grassi pulls aside the veil of mystery shrouding the priesthood and breaks down barriers between priests and lay people. He shares simple stories that reveal the incredible joy, profound awe, and overwhelming peace he finds in his life as a priest. This book restores faith and trust in priests at a critical time for the Catholic Church.
People often ask Dominic Grassi the question "Why are you a priest? "Even unasked, it hangs in the air throughout his busy days as a pastor of a large Chicago parish. Sometimes, he ask it of himself.The answer unfolds in the stories he tells in this book--vivid tales of the way the youngest son of a North Side Chicago grocer has been privileged to witness the workings of God's grace and love in the lives of the people he serves.In each of these tales, Fr. Grassi paints a candid portrait of the joys and difficulties of priestly life. But, as he explains, the joys always outweigh the heartache. "I am just an ordinary person who still finds incredible joy, profound awe, silencing mystery, and overwhelming peace as a priest," he writes. These too-uncommon qualities--joy, awe, mystery, and peace--are abundant in his stories. They are the convincing answers to the question "Why are you a priest?" They are the reasons why Catholics can rejoice that God still calls men like Dominic Grassi by name.
