After Asceticism

This morning I received from Amazon my copy of "After Asceticism: Sex, Prayer and Deviant Priests" by the Linacre Institute. Catholic World News gives a short review and the text of the book's introduction. See the article The Forum: Church scandal reflects ascetical breakdown, authors argue

This is a much-needed analysis of what went wrong in the Catholic priesthood. Essentially, the authors are arguing for a return of genuine priestly asceticism.

The book is available from Amazon. (I have to warn you that it is a bit pricey at £18.99 for a 276 page paperback.)
