Beloved Lover: The Priesthood in the Song of Songs is now available for purchase!
In the context of the mystical love poetry of the Song of Songs, Beloved Lover explores how the priest is the living image of Jesus Christ, the Spouse of the Church. The priest is called to spiritually live the spousal love of Christ toward the Church, his bride. The priest’s life radiates this spousal character as a witness to Christ’s spousal love and is thus capable of loving people with a love that is new, generous, and pure. The intriguing imagery of the Song of Songs demonstrates how the priest glows with the beauty of Christ, the Bridegroom, and perfects the beauty of Christ’s bride, the Church.
