Emily Jendzejec, Ph.D., celebrates the publication of her essay "Priesthood as Discipleship for Mission" in the recent volume A Possible Priesthood: Horizons of Hope (Orbis Books 2022). This collection of essays, rooted in church tradition and responsive to Vatican II, includes its authors' hopes for the future of the priesthood.
