Format: Paperback
During the course of his 47 years of ministry, Msgr. John J. Gilchrist has served as a parish priest, high school teacher, chaplain, and is a columnist for "The Catholic Advocate", the Catholic newspaper for the Archdiocese of Newark. Msgr. Gilchrist draws upon his experiences, studies, and reflections in Alter Christus: St. Paul Speaks To Priests, to provide his fellow clergy with inspired and inspiring insights into being a priest and pastor within the Catholic community. He reveals that being a priest is a calling, not a profession, and the core of priesthood is sacrifice and service. A number of priestly obligations are surveyed and commented upon, including fidelity, the homily, the laity, and love as a priest's primary motivation. Msgr. Gilchrist also comments upon the obligations and opportunities provided the priest to guide the Catholic community of faith in service to the Lord, especially in times of turmoil, strife, and calamity. Enhanced with a bibliography, Alter Christus should be considered as a "must read" for anyone who aspires to the priesthood, all those currently in service to their parish or diocese, and the lay reader with a concern for, and in support of, their clergy.

Alter Christus is a fine work on an important topic. I used this book when I recently made my 5 day retreat and found it to be a good stimulus for personal reflection and evaluation of my ministry and life style.
