From Hero to Servant to Mystic: Navigating the Deeper Waters of Priestly Spirituality
Scott P. Detisch
Addresses both the initial and ongoing formation of priests by tracing three significant stages in how their spiritual lives unfold. Fr. Scott offers a way of understanding the whole gamut of spiritual growth and development in priests by focusing on three major clusters of energies within men-the Hero, the Servant, and the Mystic.
By recognizing the difficulties that may arise within the inner life and outer world of a priest, Detisch offers helpful methods for navigating through those challenging periods. By applying these energies to their spiritual lives, priests will experience a different form of relationship with the person of Christ-the Hero, who offers his life for Christ; the Servant, who ministers with Christ; and the Mystic, who lives his life in Christ.
