The Lost Art of Walking on Water: Reimagining the Priesthood

The Lost Art of Walking on Water: Reimagining the Priesthood

by Michael Heher
     
 
With bursting congregations, shrinking ranks, and a priest sexual-abuse scandal in the headlines, no group seems more beleaguered of late than Roman Catholic priests. But even these turbulent times are graced, Father Heher believes. His book of essays is candid, thoughtful, honest, often funny, and filled with hope and practical suggestions for parish priests today.

Overview

With bursting congregations, shrinking ranks, and a priest sexual-abuse scandal in the headlines, no group seems more beleaguered of late than Roman Catholic priests. But even these turbulent times are graced, Father Heher believes. His book of essays is candid, thoughtful, honest, often funny, and filled with hope and practical suggestions for parish priests today. Priests can do more than survive this difficult time -- they have the capacity to grow more resilient, relaxed, and loving toward their God, their parishioners, and their fellow clerics. Facing such challenges as prayer, obedience, chaste celibacy, depression, and leadership, Father Heher offers a call to greater transparency and trusting faith.
