As Cardinal George aptly states, "This book is an invitation to trust, made by an archbishop who loves his priests."

In recent years, Archbishop Peter Sartain has written to the priests of the Diocese of Joliet (where he served from 2006-10) and the priests of the Archdiocese of Seattle (where he currently ministers). These intimate, thoughtful letters of encouragement and support are collected here. From a place of commitment and care, Archbishop Sartain addresses a variety of spiritual, theological, pastoral, and personal situations that challenge priests. His personal experience and spiritual insights come together in a moving pastoral way, offering the reader a deep sense of God's care for the world and those who shepherd his people.

Archbishop Sartain's confidence that God is in charge and ministry is based on surrendering control to God's truth, love, and simple presence permeates this book. Priests will find it uplifting, as will others who serve in ministry, and the people who care about them.

J. Peter Sartain is archbishop of Seattle and serves on the administrative committee of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. He was bishop of Little Rock, Arkansas, from 2000-06, and bishop of Joliet, Illinois, from 2006-10.
