by Gerald J. Kleba
"Are You Still A Priest?" recounts the life of a priest rooted in Jesus and ahead of his time in the 21st century church. Father Kleba embodied Pope Francis long before Jorge Bergoglio, S.J. was Pope Francis. If the Nuns on the Bus had longed for a caravan, Father Kleba would have organized the Priests on the Bus. While he was actively living the gospel of social justice, he was also ministering to fifteen children whose stories are told here. One child died in his presence. "Are You Still A Priest?" tells a pastor's story of sensible and saintly approaches to address the issues of our time in the church and the world healing both personal relationships and wounded Mother Earth.
