2016 Reprint of 1963 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is much more than a book for priests. Based on his earlier studies of the life of Christ, Sheen envisions the priest as a man sacrificing himself in the prolongation of Christ's incarnation. Whereas pagan religions offered sacrifices to the Gods, the priest is himself both priest and victim, as he sacrifices himself, as the ancient priests sacrificed animals and other creatures. A classic description of the significance of the priesthood.

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!
