By Fr. Eugene Hemrick 

From one of today's most remarkable priests, who has devoted a great deal of his life to research and writings concerning the life of priests, comes this intuitive new book. Habits of a Priestly Heart is designed to help today's priests better understand, accept, and live with the new and sometimes overwhelming challenges of the third millennium. Insights are given through Hemrick's experiences with priests he has encountered throughout his own spiritual journey. These priests display a "priestly heart" that is alive and well while demonstrating habits that have brought them to a healthy and joy-filled life centered in Christ.

Topics include:

  • Resisting the temptation that once a priest is ordained he is defined
  • Growing in kindness and holding at bay anything that threatens it
  • Keeping the contemplative edge sharp
  • Embracing ongoing education and physical fitness
  • Creating a new synergism of domestic and international priests, deacons, and the laity


Hemrick's practical wisdom will enrich the lives of all priests and help others to better understand this truly remarkable vocation.
