The pressure of expectations often means that priests fail to care for themselves and neglect their own spiritual life. Thinking they must be able to do it all, the need to be constantly available, to achieve and succeed, to cope with difficult people, to defend church teaching they question, lack of time for prayer, unresolved doubt and personal difficulty can all cause spiritual malaise. Send My Roots Rain explores these pressures and offers realistic and supportive ways priests can address them while nurturing their own wellbeing and spiritual development.

Christopher Chapman draws on more than thirty years’ experience of spiritual direction, formational training and retreat leading, as well as his own experience of priesthood, to offer a host of simple, life-giving practices and personal disciplines for spiritual health.

Full of wise advice from someone who understands, this is a book that priests will turn to again and again.
