Product Description

This book opens a window into the lives of dedicated men of the Church who have repeatedly has to relearn their most cherished traditions, rituals, and roles. Fr. Bleichner, a priest, rector, and longtime leader in American priestly formation, has a fresh perspective on the rapid changes of recent decades. Moving beyond the idealistic accounts of flawless priests, and the cynical rehearsal of grievances about the Church, Bleichner uses engaging and memorable vignettes from actual experience to give us a compassionate, humorous, and ultimately hopeful account of the recent history, and likely future, of real men who dedicate their lives and spirits to the service of the Church.
