People often ask Dominic Grassi the question Why are you a priest? Even unasked, it hangs in the air throughout his busy days as pastor of a large Chicago parish. 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 priveliged to witness the workings of God's grace and love in the lives of the people he serves. In each of these tales, Fr. Grasse paints a candid portrait of the joys and difficulties of preistly life. The too-uncommon qualities of joy, awe, mystery, and peace - are abundant in his stories. They are the convincing answers to the question. They are the reasons why Catholics can rejoice that God still calls men like Dominic Grassi by name.
