I'll admit right off that I'm biased. Fr. Aidan is, after all, the priest who baptized both of my children as well as my wife, and also chrismated me into the Orthodox Church. This is also the first book (that I know of) that I am actually mentioned in! (See September 17 -- DW, VW, and IW that were received as catechumens: that's me, my wife, and my son!) But the rating I'm giving this is completely honest and completely aside from all of that. Fr. Aidan's book is a great read; it is filled with insights and spiritual beauty. I recommend that everyone read the absolutely wonderful book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193627003X, Paperback)

Aidan of Lindisfarne was a hard-working bishop whom I love and why I call this journal Aidan's Song. What I hope to do with this journal is, every once in a while, catch a few lines of that music and hum along in praise of the One who has made me a priest and who is my rejoicing." Thus Fr. Aidan Wilcoxson describes his purpose in this chronicle of a mostly ordinary year in the life of a superficially ordinary parish priest. But under that bumbling exterior beats a heart full of a contagious joy that spills over into these pages. For those who are curious how a priest spends his time, this book will be enlightening. For those who tend to get discouraged by the daily grind, it will be uplifting. And for all who love to sing to the Lord-literally or figuratively-Aidan's Song will definitely have you humming along in praise.
