It's long overdue, this book of tributes to the quiet, humble and unsung heros God has called to the Catholic priesthood. God knew what He was doing when He chose these men, sometimes surprising them in the process. One hundred and one stories that affirm what most of our priests truly are, another Christ. Pick any story, and the love of the Lord for His people shines through each of these 101 priests. A book of sheer joy.
Another great addition of short stories to add to my library of spirtual reading. These are very inspirational and have heart warming stories very meaningful. Could be read as daily readings to start the day.
great gift for priest
The book is so plain yet so deep! Makes a beautiful reading experience for us Catholics and non Catholics. Thank you Patricia...I have been a "fan" of Sister Patricia and now I found her again to enjoy her stories
Tired of the scandal involving the Roman Catholic priesthood? Believe that no one group of people can be all bad, evil, immoral? Understand that great and life-changing good is being done the world over by dedicated and holy men whose sacred office is to God and their parishioners. Then, this is the book for you!

This is an excellent "everyday" book full of "everyday" stories written by people who have witnessed and benefited from the love, dedication and total altruism of men whose vows are their whole life. Their love of God and their fellow man shines through in a way we can only hope to emulate in our own lives.

Excellent book.
"101 Inspirational Stories of the Priesthood" goes beyond the average simple collection of personal human interest tales to delve into the heart of the spirit of the priesthood. There is so much goodness in these stories that it brings hope to readers that God still works wonders in our world and His love still lives on in the actions of our priests. It also brings a smile to the face and a bright light to the heart. Well worth reading.
I enjoy nonfiction. To be able to read inspiring real stories, one after the next, is a thrill to me. This book speaks to the power and glory of the Catholic Church, it's clergy, religious, and lay people. God Bless Sr. Patricia for putting these wonderful pieces together in one fantastic book! This book is a sequel to two others, 101 Inspirational Stories of the Rosary, and 201 Inspirational Stories of the Eucharist, by Sr. Pat that are equally as great. I encourage viewers to read them all. Mine are all a permanent part of our parish library.
I am a convert of sixty years and have been active in lay ministry for all 60. Currently, at 80 years young, I am serving as an Eucharistic Apostle of Divine Mercy and a lector. I love this book and gave a copy of it to my favorite priest who is a Franciscan. The book helps the laity to appreciate the priesthood more as well as help us to understand the privilege of our lay ministry and to grow in deeper love with our Eucharistic Lord. The Eucharistid prayers of Fr. Lovasick and the saints at the back of the book are beautiful and inspiring. I urge all to read it. Doris Duff.
