$16.95The monastic ideal of contemplation is very much alive today. Abbot William, founder of the Maronite Monks of Adoration, recounts his own journey through the tumultuous '70s and '80s to find this ideal.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia organized a lecture series on the priesthood entitled, "Faithful in Christ: The Ministry and Life of the Catholic Priest." The presenters were all high-ranking members of the seminary faculty with doctoral degrees from pontifical universities in Rome or the United States. Now in book form, these lectures look at various facets of a priest's ministry and life. Each chapter concludes with reflection questions and suggested readings.
Foreword by Cardinal Justin Rigali
Drawing insight from the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, When Salt Loses Its Saltiness warns us about the dangers ahead if clergy and lay leaders lose their focus. The book challenges us to prevent this undesirable situation. Appraising the new situations within and outside the Church, the author sees the solution primarily in the re-evangelisation and authentic formation of clergy and lay leaders.
