Subject: Your book titled, “by what authority”

I had seen this book available for purchase in my local parish but was unable to buy it for the first week. My anxiety increased daily as I knew that the books were cycled regularly due to frequent purchasing of others within the parish. As I read the book, the names of fathers whom my husband and I had listened to from Catholic media came to mind. During this pondering, we were wondering, why are you not a priest? From our perspective, it seems to be a perfect fit.

My wife would object to me being a priest. So would the pope. So would any congregation unfortunate enough to have me as their pastor.

If you are looking for more copies of By What Authority or any other book of mine, you can get them here.

Happy Advent!
