Publisher's Description

Pius XI explained that "all Christian virtues should flourish in the soul of the priest." But how are these virtues translated into concrete practice? Father Angel Pérez-López definitively answers this question with The Priest as a Man of Fortitude—the third book in his indispensable series on Priestly Formation in the Human Virtues. Based heavily on the definitions and rich teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas, Father recasts complex Thomistic concepts into an understandable and useful way to help priests understand and practice fortitude in their ministry. No mere dry theological handbook, this is a spiritual aid to put that theology into action by forming one’s character, offering spiritual exercises and meditations for helping clergymen identify and develop virtues, recognize and counteract contrary vices, and grow in personal holiness. With extensive quotations from the Scriptures all the way up to St. John Paul II and the modern Popes, Fr. Pérez-López makes full use of the Church's tradition while relating it to the modern world. The Priest as a Man of Fortitude is not only a perfect manual for seminarians but also a go-to spiritual manual for all priests to combat moral weakness and emulate Christ as the teacher and exemplar of priestly fortitude.
