Overview

In these retreat talks given to Pope Benedict and the papal household, Cardinal Arinze offers inspiring spiritual exercises focusing on the meaning of the priestly life. ?The red thread which will run through all these meditations? writes the Cardinal, ?is the image of the priest who, called by Jesus, meets him, follows him and seeks each day to become a better disciple.?

Although Cardinal Arinze throughout refers to ?priests?, he explains that much of what he says applies to anyone in ordained ministry—deacons and bishops as well as priests. In fact, even lay people and religious can greatly benefit from prayerfully reading his reflections on being a disciple of the Lord.

    Typically Informative and Straightforward

    Cardinal Francis Arinze is not giving a systematic treatise on the Roman Catholic priesthood, but rather reflects on that vocation in the context of a Retreat or Spiritual Excercises given to the Pope and those who work with him. Cardinal Arinze has a "polite frankness" about him, both in public when he speaks and in his writings as in the case of this present book, and I think that this works in his favor. He is not trying to win an award for saying something new or spectacular. Rather, his works are informative and straightforward as he demonstrates his love for the Church and her liturgy and sacraments. This book would make a good supplement to any reading on the Catholic priesthood.
