Soundings on Eucharist and Priesthood
by Michael Dallaire

The Catholic Church is caught up in the ebbs and flows of old and new that accompanies the change of eras at play in our world today. Tensions between tradition and creative change are being experienced within the Eucharist and within the priesthood worldwide. In Soundings on Eucharist and Priesthood, a slim collection of essays, reflections and poetry, Michael Dallaire addresses these tensions from a Canadian Catholic perspective. The dawn of the third millennium is witnessing the gestation of a new priesthood of the ordained, one that will reflect the diversity of persons called to servant leadership within the Church. Moreover, a renewed understanding of the Eucharist as praise for God’s creation and open to all is leading to a deeper appreciation and wider efficacy of this core sacrament. Written to be a theological, pastoral, and spiritual resource for those who seek an informed path, this book will appeal to young and old, clergy and lay, as the Catholic Church moves beyond the constraints of its Eurocentric foundations and embraces the diversity that characterizes the emerging global Catholic Church.

Michael Dallaire is an educator and writer. In addition to undergraduate degrees in the humanities, theology, and education, he holds a master of arts in theology (Christian ethics) from St. Paul University in Ottawa and a doctorate in the philosophy of education from the University of Toronto. He is the author of Contemplation-in-Liberation: A Method for Spiritual Education in the Schools (2001), Teaching with the Wind: Spirituality in Canadian Education (2011), and Sojourner Poems (2017). He has engaged in pastoral work throughout his life in various locations across Canada. He has taught at St. Paul University in Ottawa, Ontario and St. Mark’s College in Vancouver, British Columbia where he currently lives with his spouse, Erin.
