On June 19, 2009, his holiness Benedict XVI established a special year for priests, ending on June 10, 2010. The hope was to 'encourage priests as they strive for spiritual perfection because, of course, on this the effectiveness of their ministry depends.' In honor of those who daily offer their lives in service to the Lord, Joanne McKenna has written Letters to Priests, a book of inspiration, hope, and encouragement for priests, pastors, saints, and sinnersall believers travelling through innocence, penitence, and priesthood. Its two parts consist of letters, prayers, and journal entries that will inspire any on the road to redemption. So take up your walking stick and journey with those who've been on this road for years and let your story meld with theirs. Each faith journey is significant and in the end not as different as we would like to believe.
