About the Book

Priesthood is a loving vocation and a precious gift kept in a fragile vessel. Priests play a vital role in the Christian community but often need more support and encouragement than they receive. Providing a firsthand perspective, O Priest, Who Are You? delves deep into the profound meaning of the priesthood, providing invaluable insights into the role and identity of priests. Contradicting the popular belief that a priest’s sole duty is celebrating Mass, author Fr. Thanh Tran provides a comprehensive understanding of the diverse tasks and responsibilities that priests undertake. He illuminates the rich history of the priesthood, exploring its challenges, trials, and sources of inspiration and joy. Along the way, Tran shares some of his remarkable encounters as a priest, offering motivation to those grappling with the demands of their vocation and inspiration for young men to seriously consider embracing this vocation as a viable option for their own lives. This book presents a faith-filled examination of priesthood, seeking to bring clarity and depth in an examination of the concept and responsibilities of the role.
