From a reader:
One of my friends is going to seminary and I want to give him a book as a gift about the priesthood or something thoughtful that will help him. Do you have any suggestions?
I wanted to suggest Joseph Ratzinger’s Ministers of Your Joy: Scriptural Meditations on Priestly Spirituality, (UK link) but it has limited availability, out of print, etc.
Otherwise, there is a good book by a very smart priest in Rome Fr. Joseph Carolla, SJ, Conformed to Christ Crucified: Meditations on Priestly Life and Ministry.
I am sure some priest readers here could pitch in a few names.
