The Catholic Priest: Image of Christ (Book)

If you are a sucker as I am for great coffee table books, you will not want to miss this one. Not only is this book packed with tons of traditional Catholic art, but it contains several engaging essays, many of which are written by priests from the ICK. You can get it on sale at Ignatius Press.

"Published during this Year of the Priest with the support of the Institute of Christ the King, the monumental book The Catholic Priest: Image of Christ places in the forefront the beauty and sacredness of the Catholic priesthood. With 560 illustrations spanning fifteen centuries of art originating in many parts of the world, the author depicts all aspects of the life of the priest, focusing most particularly on the celebration of the Eucharist as the very heart of the priestly being. Included in these vignettes are the life of a priest as a religious and the self-sacrifice of the priest at its highest level: martyrdom."
