    In this penetrating book written some five years before his death, Sheen explores the duality inherent in the vocation of the modern-day priest: his need to feel, like Christ, the holiness of God that binds him to the Father; and at the same time his need to become a victim, like Christ, for the world's sins. He talks of the priest's role in continuing the incarnation, the passion and the resurrection of Christ; the need for a sense of humor in the priest who must be in the world but not of it; the frustrations he can expect to encounter in the priesthood; Mary as mother and model of the lonely, obedient and chaste priest; the indispensable role of the Holy Hour in the spiritual growth and happiness of the priest. Written with the liveliness, wit and spiritual insight that continue to endear Sheen to millions, Those Mysterious Priests emphasizes the sense of oblation and spirituality that is such an essential part of any effective priesthood in the world today. Once again, Sheen proves himself to be a truly prophetic voice for our times.
