Monsignor Paul L. Bochicchio Pens Book Reflecting on His Priestly Journey of Joys and Challenges

By: WebWire

Over the years, experiencing the priestly life has allowed Monsignor Paul L. Bochicchio to form thoughts that have now culminated into an autobiography titled “Along The Way: A Priest's Journey of Joys and Challenges” (2021).

Dedicated to people who had contributed to his growth and spirituality “along the way,” the book captures Fr. Bochicchio's life from his early childhood through his priesthood to retirement. He served in the Archdiocese of Newark, NJ, in various capacities, not only as a parish priest but also as a youth minister, teacher, and spiritual guide to his parishioners, especially the youth.

“Along The Way” is not only replete with personal stories and anecdotes but also reflections and essays in which Fr. Bochicchio shares about events, encounters with certain individuals, and various topics that impacted him. These reflections and essays give readers a glimpse of his priestly style and insights.

The book is a must-read for lay people who are not familiar with the priesthood and religious life and have no serious thought of a vocation. This is also recommended for people who consider a religious vocation or are already in training for religious life or serving in various dioceses or religious orders throughout the country and the world.

“Along The Way” will remind readers that though the priesthood (or any form of religious life) is the most marvelous thing that could happen to a member of their family, it is not always simple and easy as it requires many skills and entails many challenges. They will be comforted, however, with the fact that a religious vocation also comes with immense joy – and that no priest is a lone ranger in their journey.
