At the Service of the Truth: Priesthood and Ascetic Life


8 in stock

Cardinal Robert Sarah has emerged as one of the clearest and most profound voices in the Catholic world today, speaking with his trademark clarity and directness this book is drawn from a retreat given to priests in 2020.

In this book, Cardinal Sarah confronts some of the most burning issues facing the priesthood and Christian life in general, while also presenting a diagnosis of the lack of faith and zeal which has become so common among clergy and Catholics in general. He responds with an exhortation to move beyond ministry as mere work, but rather as a path of sanctification in which ongoing formation, the careful and dignified celebration of the liturgy and the ascetic life are fundamental to rediscovering the greatest good, which is the salvation of souls.
