Ever since Pope Benedict XVI inaugurated the Year of the Priest, much has been said and written about Priests and the priesthood. But this is not just another book on priesthood. What the reader will find between the covers is not mainly

Treasures in clay, indeed! Human beings among (not above) human beings. A book of firsthand testimony of their priestly life. It is as though a mirror is held before them and they make a sincere introspection and then a candid sharing of what they find. A highly inspiring book for priests and laity alike.
