This book is a collection of essays presented at a seminar held at Creighton University by The Institute for Priestly Formation. All of the essays were written in response to David Fagerberg’s book On Liturgical Asceticism and focused on various issues facing clerics in formation. The essays explore how liturgy renders Christ’s sacrifice available for our own deification, allowing seminarians to reflect more deeply on their noble task of bringing this mystery to the people in Sacrament, word, and charity.
