"A priest is mysterious, because he lives in two worlds. He is at his best when he leads 'a double life', at once both human and divine." In this penetrating book written some five years before his death, Sheen explores this duality inherent in the vocation of the modern-day priest: his need, like that of Christ, to feel the holiness of God that binds him to the Father; and at the same time his need to become a victim, like Christ, for the world's sins, assuming its guilt and poverty in union with the Lord. In these pages he covers a wide range of topics including what it means to be both priest and victim, like Christ, for the world's sins, assuming its guilt and poverty in union with the Lord. In these pages he covers a wide range of topics including what it means to be both priest and victim; the priest's role in continuing the incarnation, the passion and the resurrection of Christ; the need for a sense of humor in the priest who must be in the world but not of it; frustration in the priesthood; Mary as the mother of all priests and model of the lonely, obedient and chaste priest; the indispensable role of the Holy Hour in the spiritual growth and happiness of the priest. Sheen proves himself to be a truly prophetic voice for the twenty-first century. Written with the liveliness, wit and spiritual insight that continue to endear Sheen to millions, Those Mysterious Priests emphasizes the sense of oblation and spirituality that is such an essential part of any effective priesthood in the world today.
This is a reprint of Fulton Sheen's last book published in his lifetime, written a few years before he died in 1979. In his final years, Archbishop Sheen gave many retreats to priests, and was very concerned with making sure that priests had a strong moral and spiritual background to meet the challenges facing the Church after Vatican II. This book covers a wide range of topics affecting the priesthood, and is vintage Sheen, written with his usual insight and humor.
