A Mother’s Plea
“This is the vividly personal story of a priest in a Chicago parish coming to terms with what the priesthood demands of a man in a great modern city…” Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago
In A Mother’s Plea, I have opened the door. The veil has been lifted to the plea of a Mother. It takes courage to respond to her call. I say courage because no one who answers the call will go forward unscathed. But the sweet taste of victory brings joy enveloped in the mystery of God, who is ever present in the inner sanctuary that lies within all of us.
Borrowing the words of the beloved disciple John, A Mother’s Plea is pure and simple, a testimony to the distress, the kingdom, and the endurance we share in Jesus. May the Blessed Virgin Mary inspire courage and strength for the mission entrusted to all who are willing to make the sacrifices needed to bring hope to a world still so new to the third millennium.
