Product Description

If priests want the people entrusted to their care to develop a meaningful spiritual life, they must provide a living example of what that is.

In A Life of Daring Simplicity: Daily Meditations on the Priesthood Michael Becker helps priests provide that example. Monsignor Becker has gathered a powerful collection of reflections drawn from an impressively wide array of great spiritual guides. Pope Saint John Paul II is well represented here and so is Karl Rahner. We also hear from Catherine de Hueck Doherty and Adrian Von Speyr, Pedro Arrupe and Columba Marmion, and many more.

Each passage challenges priests to reflect on their own vocation. Every page is filled with holy wisdom that will nourish priestly ministry and invite readers to embrace "a life of daring simplicity" - words used by Pope Saint John XXIII to describe his own life.

Each day includes a Scripture verse, an inspiring insight on the priestly life, and a closing prayer or question to prompt deeper reflection. Spend a few minutes every day with these meditations and you will deepen your own commitment to your ministry and find ever more zeal to serve those entrusted to your care.

Editorial Reviews

"How deep can priestly spirituality go? Msgr. Michael Becker’s work demonstrates it has no bottom. It is easy to see the priesthood as a series of daily ritual functions. Becker identifies the sacred uniqueness within these functions by drawing us into the mystical side of priests, a side that is often overlooked in our busy, distracted culture. As meditation draws us into the depths, so too does Becker uncover the spiritual depths of being a priest. The renowned theologian Karl Rahner once said that Christianity must be mystical or it won’t exist. Becker identifies the mystical in the priesthood upon which its very existence exists."
Rev. Eugene F. Hemrick
Director of the National Institute for the Renewal of the Priesthood

"When parish priests are trying to find time for meditation, reflection and discernment, this resource is an excellent opportunity to be engaged with scripture, theologians and prayer."
Very Reverend James A. Wehner
Rector of Notre Dame Seminary, New Orleans
