In this very personal and moving reflection on the meaning of the priesthood, Father Alfred McBride explores a priest's commitment to feed our people and witness the church's social teachings, to spend time in daily prayer, to find solutions to the crisis of priestly identity plaguing today's priests, and to become a man of personal mercy in all one's dealings as a priest.
A Priest Forever is McBride's search for fresh growths in vocations as well as new hope in the hearts of priests everywhere who again say, "Yes, Lord," to the challenge of love of God and our beloved people. Simply put, Alfred McBride sees in faith the renewal of Catholic priests."A large serving of wisdom and common sense. A Priest Forever is a call to appreciation of what priests are and what they do. If priesthood is important to you for whatever reason, so is this book."--Most Reverend Daniel E. Pilarczyk, Archbishop of Cincinnati
"Every priest will find in this book nourishment for his soul, encouragement for his vocation, and advice for his ministry. This is a spiritual gem." --James Martin, author, My Life With The Saints
"A priest's life as I know it - the joys, problems, and challenges. Father Al McBride uses his own wide experience and that of priests across the country to give practical ways of growing. I recommend this book for spiritual reading, a personal retreat or to be read chapter by chapter by priests' support groups." --Jeremy Harrington guardian and commissary of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land
