For the student anxious to learn how best to do the work of the Lord.

Catherine urges seminarians to prepare to fill the need for spiritual direction and for teaching the beauty and fullness of God.

It is doubtful that any woman has spoken more often to seminarians and future priests than Catherine Doherty—renowned Catholic speaker, author of more than 40 books and thousands of articles, and foundress of the Madonna House Apostolate.

Catherine understands that the awakening of your priestly identity is crucial, for you are called to extend the incarnation of Jesus Christ in history. In this highly inspirational work, she addresses a wide range of topics important to your priestly spiritual formation.

Catherine’s words will encourage, motivate, and occasionally astonish you with their clarity and depth—enabling you to prepare to be a modern-day shepherd to God’s people in the spiritual crisis and challenges facing us today.

“The message of Dear Seminarian is, in my opinion, even more pertinent today than when it was first published…. With the passing of time Catherine Doherty may become appreciated as a profound spiritual director.” — Bishop Paul V. Dudley, Bishop Emeritus of Sioux Falls, SD

“Catherine was a spiritual mother, with a vast experience of the spiritual life. In Dear Seminarian, she addresses a wide range of topics germane to priestly and spiritual formation. She received as spiritual sons, those who sought her guidance. Catherine’s starting point was always priestly identity—the priest extends the incarnation of Christ in history; he is an icon of Christ, or ‘another Christ.’ She sought to prepare them to shepherd God’s people in the spiritual crisis and challenge facing the 20th century, a crisis that has continued and deepened in the present.” — Father Don Guglielmi, in Staritsa: The Spiritual Maternity of Catherine Doherty
