The beloved Archbishop Sheen, whose cause for canonization is open in Rome, presents a profound and deeply spiritual look at the meaning of the priesthood and relationship of the priest with Christ as an "alter Christus".
Sheen delves deeply into what he considers the main character of the priesthood, and one not often discussed, that of being, like Christ, a "holy victim". To be like Christ, Sheen emphasizes that the priest must imitate Christ in His example of sacrifice, offering himself as a victim to make His Incarnation continually present in the world.

Fulton J. Sheen offers an insightful and comprehensive guide to the mystery of the Catholic Priesthood in a way seldom considered by the lay people. He portrays the priest as a victim, like our lord himself at calvary. He calls priests to set their own ambitions aside and allow Christ to work through them.
Fantastic book! Every priest and seminarian should be required to read this book! Heck, every Catholic should read this book, at least to know what a good priest should be!
