Product description

In a robust and engaging manner, David Bohr offers us a thorough review and timely reanalysis of the Catholic diocesan priesthood. Biblical, historical, and sacramental voices dialogue with the relevant documents of the Second Vatican Council, other papal pronouncements, and the perspectives of some of the major commentators on the state of the Catholic priesthood today. Clergy and laity alike will find in BohrG s models of priestly ministry and the topics of consecration, mission, and celibacy a flash point reigniting the discussion of the past, present, and future of the Catholic diocesan priesthood."Monsignor David Bohr is currently pastor of St. Peter's Cathedral, Scranton, PA. He formerly served as diocesan director of continuing education of priests (1977G 89); rector of St. Pius X Seminary, Dalton, PA (1990G 2004); and academic dean of the North American College, Rome (2004G 07). He also taught theology part time at the University of Scranton and the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome. Ordained a priest for the Diocese of Scranton in 1971, he received an STL in dogmatic theology from the Gregorian University and a doctorate in moral theology, summa cumlaude, in 1977 from the Academia Alfonsiana, Rome, Italy. Previous publications include "Evangelization in America "and "Catholic Moral Tradition."

Review quote

The Diocesan Priest is a must read for those involved in the formation of candidates for the ministerial priesthood, and it belongs on every seminarian's bookshelf. Msgr. Bohr is deserving of praise for giving us such a fine synthetic treatment of key considerations connected to that office in the Church by which men are called to be and live and serve in persona Christi capitis.Msgr. Robert J. Batule, Adjunct Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Seat of Wisdom
