Abstract:

"In this book we are not concerned with theory, but with the practice of the priestly life; it is a question of 'mystagogy', or initiation into the mystery of what 'priesthood' is about. The book has emerged out of retreat conferences given to candidates for ordination in 1961...Practice in the priestly life is not in the first place a matter of cursory reading or of study, but of reflection and meditation. These conferences are meant to stimulate a deeper understanding and a more devout acceptance of the priestly way of life." [Preface].
