Ever since Vatican II there has been a lively discussion on the nature of the priesthood and the function of the priest. The contents of this book reﬂect to a large extent both the trend and the effect of that discussion. Some of the 9 articles that go to make up this volume develop the theological perspective on the priesthood and the priestly ministry, while others discuss the formation and the spirituality of priests. Yet others concem relationships of priests with the people in general and with women in particular. Also touched upon are the challenges priests face in India today. CALLED TO SERVE is all set to contribute immensely to a clearer understanding of the priesthood and the priestly ministry.
