From the Depths of Our Hearts: Priesthood, Celibacy, and the Crisis of the Catholic Church

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Cardinal Robert Sarah
Ignatius Press, 148 pages



Here’s the book that stirred up no small amount of controversy in January when, just prior to the book’s release, the pope emeritus asked that his name be removed as co-author. Whatever the concern is, Benedict XVI and Cardinal Sarah each contribute chapters to this work and collaborated on the introduction and conclusion to the book. Together they provide a succinct catechesis on the Catholic priesthood and a masterful defense of the discipline of priestly celibacy. Amid the sexual abuse crisis and the push in some quarters for optional celibacy, this book serves as an urgent reminder of the true character and necessity of the priesthood of Christ.
