My Basilian Priesthood is a memoir of Michael Quealey's six years
in the order in the 1960s. During his priesthood, Quealey was
director of the Newman Centre at the University of Toronto and
engaged in reforming the mass and in other theological matters. The
1960s was a time of questioning traditions, including the role of
Biblical criticism, the nature of liturgy, the place of women in
the Church and in society, and the power of community living and
decision-making. Quealey was deeply involved in all these matters,
and sought to fulfill his commitment to service and balance that
with his faith and vows of obedience to the institution of the
Church. Written decades after the events he describes, the book is
his reflection on the excitement of the times and the tensions
created when tradition encountered new ideas and new forms of
communal living. Here's a story that blends Toronto history with
Catholic Church history and an inside look at 1960s counterculture.
