Publisher's Description

As Cardinal George aptly states, "This book is an invitation to trust, made by an archbishop who loves his priests."

In recent years, Archbishop Peter Sartain has written to the priests of the Diocese of Joliet (where he served from 2006-10) and the priests of the Archdiocese of Seattle (where he currently ministers). These intimate, thoughtful letters of encouragement and support are collected here. From a place of commitment and care, Archbishop Sartain addresses a variety of spiritual, theological, pastoral, and personal situations that challenge priests. His personal experience and spiritual insights come together in a moving pastoral way, offering the reader a deep sense of God's care for the world and those who shepherd his people.

Archbishop Sartain's confidence that God is in charge and ministry is based on surrendering control to God's truth, love, and simple presence permeates this book. Priests will find it uplifting, as will others who serve in ministry, and the people who care about them.

Editorial Reviews

These letters, as encouragingly practical as they are profound, contain a vision of priestly life tested and proven in the crucible of one man's actual experience. And, at the core of the vision, there is always a down-to-earthness and humility, a manifest joy, and a candid acknowledgment of both the burden and blessing of priesthood today.
Paul Murray, OP, author of The New Wine of Dominican Spirituality: A Drink Called Happiness

Archbishop Sartain's Strengthen Your Brothers permits the reader a route of access into the mind, heart and soul of the Catholic priesthood, displaying how God's grace can transform finite, and often fragile men, into living icons that reveal the power and presence of Jesus Christ.
Very Rev. Robert Barron, Rector of Mundelein Seminary
