What Price Priesthood
WHAT PRICE PRIESTHOOD?! This question constantly penetrated Father Joe ́s mind as he tread a perilous path to fulfill God ́s unmistakable call.
Heartbreak of infidelity
Christian Concentration Camp torture
New love and second broken engagement
Hurt, insensitivity, rejection
Injustice, humiliation, apathy
Marriage and divorce
Tragic devastating illnesses
This is a story of an average fun loving young man named Joe who did not want to be considered a "holy Joe" but succumbed to God ́s dramatic summons to resign a promising professional position and enter seminary to become a priest.
This story paints a shocking picture of church politics which contributed much pain and frustration to Father Joe ́s efforts. However, blessings triumph over adversity.
WHEN THE CHURCH FAILS, GOD PREVAILS!
