Charism of Priestly Celibacy, The: Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Reflections
Charism of Priestly Celibacy
Beha Christopher R

The value of celibacy is often questioned today, yet recent surveys of priests show that over 75% of them feel personally called to celibacy and find it a source of grace in their lives. This rich collection of reflections offers both priests and lay Catholics a deeper, theologically based appreciation of celibacy as a charism or gift of the Holy Spirit. With contributions from leading authorities in scripture, Church history, theology, pastoral leadership and psychology, this collection offers what one contributor describes as 'a reversal of mindset', a reframing of the issue for today. Contributors include Msgr Stephen J Rossetti, Rev Raniero Cantalamessa, OFM and Archbishop Allen Vigneron. These reflections will also be a profound source of spiritual reflection for priests and those who seek to support them in their vocations.
