"A Priest Forever"

Last weekend I read the book, "A Priest Forever: The Life of Father Eugene Hamilton." It is a wonderful book written by Fr. Benedict Groeschel that tells the story of one young man's struggle against cancer, and also his lifelong call to the priesthood at the same time. Fr. Hamilton died of cancer only three hours after becoming a priest; a call that he had worked at all his life.

It is a very beautiful story, one that is both faith affirming and shows what the priesthood is really about.
