    He knows what he is talking about.

    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.
