Walking with Purpose

The Better Pastor
by Patrick Lencioni

“As he approached the door to the sacristy, Fr. Daniel Connor had no idea that his parish— and his priesthood—was about to be changed forever.”

The Better Pastor is a fictional yet realistic story, lovingly written for all those priests in the world who are not only spiritual shepherds but also leaders of the organizations we call parishes.

Being the pastor of a Catholic parish is one of the most challenging jobs in the world. Whether they are responsible for a small rural parish, medium-sized urban one, or large suburban mega-parish, all pastors have one thing in common: they can’t do it alone. Unfortunately, many wonderful priests find that becoming a pastor can be overwhelming and lonely, and can even diminish the joy of their vocation. This is a tragedy, and an unnecessary one.

In his first book intended specifically for clergy, Patrick Lencioni tells the story of a priest who is challenged to think differently about his “job.” As he does in his other leadership fables written for the secular world, Lencioni quickly cuts to the heart of the challenge faced by leaders, and he provokes them to embrace simple but powerful concepts that can change the way they work and serve the people God has put in their lives.
