Abstract:

As union with the beloved is the final goal of any romance, the romance of a priest (referred to throughout the work as "the Levite") is described as the gradual realization of the presence of God in his soul, made possible by God's grace and strengthened through the daily celebration of the Eucharist. The priest shows his love for God by being faithful to his vow of celibacy. The cross of celibacy is intended to strengthen the priest as a leader in the army of God against the forces of evil. Through faithfulness to this vow, the priest models obedience to the sixth commandment for married couples and may serve as a model of purity for children. The priest relies on the Blessed Virgin Mary for help in fulfilling this vow and in better understanding her Son. The author argues that faithlessness to the vow of celibacy can have serious consequences including the degradation of society, and even its ultimate ruin. (JME).

"The gradual development of the English language after the invasion of the 'Romance-speaking strangers, ' at the time of the Norman Conquest, has resulted in a new meaning for the noun 'Romance, ' which now implies a blending of the heroic, the marvelous, the mysterious in actions, manners, ideas, language, or literature. For the Levite the term romance should be understood in this sense of the word as often as it is recalled in this volume." (Ch. 1, pp. 3-4).
