An excellent book that explains the reasons & rationale for the discipline of celibacy for Catholic priests. Fr. Carter Griffin shows that the ancient practice of celibacy, when lived well, helps a priest exercise his spiritual fatherhood joyfully and fruitfully. Along the way, Griffin explores:

  • the question of optional celibacy
  • some pitfalls of celibate paternity
  • the selection and formation of candidates for celibate priesthood
  • why biological fathers are also called to spiritual fatherhood
  • the powerful impact of celibacy on the Church and the wider culture

In a critical moment for the Catholic priesthood, Fr. Griffin brings light and hope with a new perspective on the Church’s perennial wisdom on celibacy. With a foreword by Dr. Scott Hahn.
