Rossetti, a priest himself, has worked for many years in a treatment centre for priests and religious in difficulty (St Lukes). From that base he has written a very realistic, yet also very uplifting, book on the nature and challenges of (Roman Catholic) priestly ministry.Speaking from the context of my own priesthood, and also of a decade of being involved in the formation of candidates for the priesthood, I can honestly say this is probably the best book of its type (and there are quite a few) I have read.
