Description of the book "Those Mysterious Priests": This is a reprint of Fulton Sheen's last book published in his lifetime, written a few years before he died in In his final years, Archbishop Sheen gave many retreats to priests, and was very concerned with making sure that priests had a strong moral and spiritual background to meet the challenges facing the Church after Vatican II. Bishop Sheen covers a wide range of topics in his discussion of what it means to be a priest: both priest and victim, the priest’s role in continuing the incarnation, the passion and resurrection of Christ, the frustration, Mary as model and mother.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen called them “Those Mysterious Priests” in his book, and his earlier () work is titled “The Priest is Not His Own.” Father Leo Trece’s book called the priest “A Man Approved.” Decades later, we are in the grip of a vocations crisis, as we all know. But where is .   A few years before his death, he wrote a book entitled Those Mysterious Priests. The title is most appropriate because the Catholic priesthood will always have a certain air of mystery about it, both for those who are called to live it and for those who are touched by it or wish to learn more about it.
