Item description for Called by Name: The Inspiring Stories of 12 Men Who Became Catholic Priests by Christine Mugridge & Jerry Usher...

This book will inspire vocations and help men and women everywhere grow in their love and respect for the dignity of the Catholic Priesthood. Catholic priests communicate the glory of heaven through the ministry of the word and the sacraments, especially in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the source and summit of our Faith. By fulfilling this mission, these men truly become an alter Christus, another Christ. In this intriguing look at the awesome call to the priesthood, you will experience firsthand the joys, the struggles, and the extraordinary grace needed, and given by, these men we call Father. In Called by Name you will meet: Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., a poor kid from Brooklyn who would grow up to become a TV star. Fr. Alberto Cutie, a Cuban exile who became the first priest since Archbishop Fulton Sheen to host a major television program on a national secular network. John Cardinal Foley, a priest from Philadelphia who would become the president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communication. Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., who as a child wanted to be a cowboy and later found himself in John Paul II s posse . Archbishop Elden Curtiss, who was granted the grace of knowing he was called to be a priest from as early as he can remember. Fr. Frank A. Pavone, M.E.V., whose pondering of mathematical concepts led him to an awe-inspiring trip through the Scriptures that continues to this day. And many more...

Reviews - What do customers think about Called by Name: The Inspiring Stories of 12 Men Who Became Catholic Priests?

I really enjoyed reading this book.  Jul 20, 2008

In the forward, Archbishop Wuerl wrote that God calls each of us and invites us to respond to that call. That's what this book is about - hearing and responding to that call. While this book is about how 12 men responded to the call to the priesthood, the messages found here are for all of us, no matter what vocation we are being called to.

I really enjoyed reading these stories and highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about the gift of the priesthood and who these men are that are being called. Each of these 12 stories was inspiring. Each has a unique, powerful story. I hope that the authors consider writing a sequel.

Called by Name  Jun 8, 2008
The stories of these priests were so inspiring, what they overcame to become the "sons" of Blessed Mother and Jesus is awesome. I loved all the stories, but Fr. Maxim Popov touched my heart the most. You won't regret ordering and reading this book.
Called By Name  May 9, 2008
I highly recommend this book for all young men discerning their vocation to the priesthood. The vocation stories are truly inspiring and I felt humbled when I read them.
