Priests between ideal and reality
In view of the general loss of acceptance and relevance of the ecclesiastical due to the worldwide scandal of sexual abuse of wards by clergy, the Church needs renewal. What role can the priest play in a church of tomorrow? The volume takes up various dimensions of this question: Theology and spirituality of the priesthood, vocation and endangerment, requirements and abilities, future perspectives.
