I'm a pastor and have been a priest for 10 years. This book was absolutely inspiring. Why were we not talking about these things in the seminary?
I have a few lay people reading the book and they are beginning to see the vision and have found it to be an amazing, fascinating read. Recommended for anyone discontent with the lack of intentional disciples in their parish.
In his new parish, Fr. Mallon initially saw parents come to have their babies baptized, and never come back. He saw teens receive Confirmation --- on their last-ever visit to a church. And he saw the weekly rush out the door before his Sunday masses even ended --- and he resolved to change this culture in his parish. And remarkably, to a large degree he did.
Reading this review I know you are thinking right now: “Man, what a lot of work!” No, what a lot of fun! Fr. Mallon found that his parishioners yearned to have a relationship with Jesus, and with their neighbors. They didn’t want to come to a one-hour mass with strangers; they wanted to meet and worship and do things with friends and neighbors. And once they learned (or remembered) how much they enjoyed making new friends, their life became more full, with their new-found family.
You and your pastor need to read this book, and begin making changes in your parish. Now!
I know of this book and this program because I am seeing these changes beginning in my own parish, and I am excited.
