“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.”

"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."
