An Introspective Contemplation on the Priestly Ideals

By Aboki Associates

Summary

In a world where the priesthood is facing dire
challenges like sexual abuse of children, spiritual
aridity, misappropriation of funds and gross
materialism among others, there is a need for priests
who are well experienced in ministry and have
developed themselves not only spiritually but
intellectually and psychologically to help their
fellow priests live above the challenges of the 21st
century. One of those refined priests in Northern
Nigeria is Reverend Father Professor Moses
Orhungur, a scholar and legend.
Fr Moses Orhungur has lived up to this task of
helping in guiding and instructing his fellow priests
in line with the challenges of the time. This is what
Father has done in 2008 at the annual retreat in the
Catholic Diocese of Jalingo. In this eight chapter book,
Father Orhungur has reflected on the essence of a
retreat and the attitude of priests during retreats; the
true ideals of the priesthood, the challenges of the
Nigerian priests in the 21st century; the collective
responsibility of all priests; Mary, our mother and
model; a lesson on patience; and the importance of
reconciliation. Each of these chapters has a unique
message for a contemporary priest and the lay
faithful. They offer an outstanding expose’ on the

Abstract

In a world where the priesthood is facing dire
challenges like sexual abuse of children, spiritual
aridity, misappropriation of funds and gross
materialism among others, there is a need for priests
who are well experienced in ministry and have
developed themselves not only spiritually but
intellectually and psychologically to help their
fellow priests live above the challenges of the 21st
century. One of those refined priests in Northern
Nigeria is Reverend Father Professor Moses
Orhungur, a scholar and legend.
Fr Moses Orhungur has lived up to this task of
helping in guiding and instructing his fellow priests
in line with the challenges of the time. This is what
Father has done in 2008 at the annual retreat in the
Catholic Diocese of Jalingo. In this eight chapter book,
Father Orhungur has reflected on the essence of a
retreat and the attitude of priests during retreats; the
true ideals of the priesthood, the challenges of the
Nigerian priests in the 21st century; the collective
responsibility of all priests; Mary, our mother and
model; a lesson on patience; and the importance of
reconciliation. Each of these chapters has a unique
message for a contemporary priest and the lay
faithful. They offer an outstanding expose’ on the
failure and strength of the priesthood. This
revolutionary and scholarly message from Father do
not only address the problems within the priesthood
viii
but teaches priests to live peacefully with one
another and in a serene environment that is
conducive to reflection to deepen our spirituality for
the salvation of all souls for Christ. Father has
presented this salvific message in concise and simple
language devoid of theological misgivings and
heretic insinuations. In fact, no priest will go through
this piece and remain the same, hence it contains
classic initiatives that are capable of salvaging the
souls that are even on the verge of despair and
awakening priest’s consciousness on the need to be
more responsible and live chastely.
