The Catholic Church is essentially sacerdotal; the heart of her life, her very identity, rests with her ministerial priesthood, dispensers of the mysteries of God, interceding for and with the people at the foot of His altar. It is no surprise, then, that as her priests go, so will the Church. That's why Bishop Wilhelm Stockums wrote The Priesthood--to prevent his priests from forgetting their identity, and to remind them of the fundamental nature, purpose, and duties of the calling they had received from God. In these pages you will find one of the clearest and most powerful expressions of the priesthood's noble character and solemn responsibilities, its scriptural foundation and heavenly aims, that has ever been written.

About the Author
The Most Rev. Wilhelm Stockums, D.D., was an Auxiliary Bishop of Cologne in the twentieth century. He composed his acclaimed work The Priesthood in order to prevent his priests from forgetting their identities, as well as to remind them of the purpose and duties of the office that God had given them. The work was translated by the Rev. Joseph W. Grunder and originally published by the B. Herder Book Company in 1938. The Priesthood was reprinted by TAN in 1974 and again in 1982.
