Hans Urs von Balthasar's writings have pastoral implications that even now are barely recognised and hardly developed.

Here a pastorally experienced theologian, who knew von Balthasar personally, unfolds this pastoral dimension for the first time. Integrating Christology and Ecclesiology with the profound spirituality that for von Balthasar is inseparable from authentic theology, Fr Power demonstrates the paradoxical grandeur and weakness of the Catholic priesthood. He highlights the roles of the Catholic priest as servant, bridegroom, shepherd, victim, teacher, prophet, celebrant and minister of reconciliation.

At a time when many priests feel their identity called into question, this book offers new hope for the renewal of the priesthood in the Catholic Church.
