The Priests We Need To Save the Church 

In The Priests We Need To Save the Church, author Kevin Wells offers incontrovertible evidence that outside the finger of God, only the day-to-day witness of the faithful parish priest will rescue a Catholic Church in seeming terminal disarray. Through memorable storytelling, Wells proposes a blueprint of holiness for priests as he showcases heroic priest-saints who took the narrow path of self-denial once strolled by St. John Vianney and other great shepherds of the past, including Wells own legendary uncle, Monsignor Thomas Wells Tommy."

Tommy was a widely beloved parish priest who merrily hopscotched from parish-to-parish, leading innumerable souls to God, leading men to the priesthood, and providing an inspiring example of mystic love of Christ s Body and Blood. When he was gruesomely murdered in his Maryland rectory in the year 2000, Tommy left many thousands of his friends and former parishioners orphaned from the only shepherd they had known.

Based on his own interviews with dozens of priests, exorcists, seminary formators, and disillusioned laity throughout scandal-plagued 2018, Wells here identifies a type of anti-fatherhood that has permeated parishes and rectories throughout the land, as too many priests seem reluctant to embrace their identity as indefatigable shepherds of souls and have settled, instead, for a type of bachelorhood.

The gaps in the line of battle in today s post-Christian world must be filled by war heroes, those men who live out priesthoods brimmed with bravery, self-denial, and a chivalric impulse to save souls. Only the sacrificial and joy-filled witness of the parish priest can begin to lead the travailed Church back onto the path Christ intended two thousand years ago.

Praying for Priests New Edition:An Urgent Call for the Salvation of Souls

Priests are called to fight evil, but they cannot fight it alone. As attacks on the priesthood intensify, you have a vital role to play in supporting priestly renewal and vocations. Those men who have answered God's call depend upon you to wield the most powerful weapon against the evil one: prayer.

In this newly revised 2018 edition, celebrated retreat master and author Kathleen Beckman addresses the current abuse crisis facing the Church. She offers Church-approved ways in which you can contribute to the welfare of the Church. Priests, seminarians, consecrated religious, and laypeople will all benefit from insights into the indispensability of the Catholic priesthood, the mission of praying for priests in the context of the New Evangelization, testimonies of spiritual mothers and priests, and scriptural rosaries dedicated to priests, vocations, and reparation. Although both men and women are responsible for priestly renewal, Kathleen explains the special vocation of spiritual motherhood of priests. This vocation is embedded with graces that enable women to work together with Our Lady and the Holy Spirit for the sanctification of priests.

Holier priests lead to a holier Church. Because prayer is a source of grace and the mother of all virtues, you can call down showers of graces upon the priesthood. The Church and her priests need your prayers now more than ever, and here you'll find your special calling from God that must be fulfilled for the salvation of souls.
