Priestly Holiness by Archbishop Lefebvre now available.

Angelus Press is pleased to announce that Priestly Holiness, a posthumous collection of writings on the priesthood by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, is now available. This beautiful hardcover volume will make an excellent gift for priests, seminarians, and anyone interested in understanding the true and sublime dignity of the Catholic priesthood.

In the words of Archbishop Lefebvre (from the back cover):

The true priest loves souls, gives himself to them, sacrifices himself for them for the love of God. He gives himself to souls as he gives them the Eucharist. He gives them Jesus by teaching and by Holy Communion. All of his priestly life thereby becomes a Mass. The holy priest lives his Mass and brings all those around him to live it, as well. He leads them to understand that all of our lives ought to be a Mass, a total oblation, a continual sacrifice of ourselves, out of love of God and out of love of neighbor. That is the ideal of the true priest, an ideal which brings him a lasting joy and peace of soul.
