Priesthood: A Life Open to Christ
On the subject of new publications, I should mention this new book by St Pauls. I've been invited to a book launch on Friday 19th June in the Throne Room of Archbishop's House, Westminster. Archbishop Vincent Nichols will be hosting the event but unfortunately I won't be able to get there. It is preceded by a special Mass in Westminster Cathedral at 5.30pm to celebrate the start of the Year of the Priesthood.
The book, compiled by Canon Daniel Cronin, contains 78 articles on the priesthood written by bishops and priests from around the world. It might make a nice present for your parish priest to mark the Year of the Priesthood that begins this week. You can order a copy online from St Pauls.
