This is the vividly personal story of a priest in a Chicago parish coming to terms with what the priesthood demands of a man in a great modern city. Profoundly conscious of the sin and unbelief that distort human lives and that touch him too, Father Buś is sometimes desperate in face of the hostile disregard for the church so prevalent today. Yet his encounter with The Divine Mercy and his closeness to the Blessed Virgin Mary enable him to consecrate his life as a priest totally to them. This book will rejoice the hearts of faithful Catholics and will touch especially the hearts of priests and those preparing for the priesthood.

A Mother's Plea is an absolute must for ones spiritual library! At a time when humanity faces grave spiritual dangers and the priesthood has been besmirched by scandal and attacked by the secular media, Father Anthony Buś, in this inspiring work, shows the beauty and power of Gods love in his priesthood. His own journey, met with trials and triumphs, is a story that is extremely moving and will forever touch your heart.

This powerful work reflects the beauty of abandonment to God, the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the power of trust in God's Divine Mercy. It has inspired me and will stir in you the desire to seek greater holiness. This is a must read for fellow priests and for anyone searching for greater meaning in their lives and a more intimate relationship with God.

Take it from a non-Catholic, this book is a blessing and should be in every hotel/motel, just like the Gideon Bible.

An unusually rare and compelling look into the soul of a Roman Catholic priest, this timely and timeless diary will rekindle hope in the ancient, but ever so new quest for union with God.

Against the backdrop of the high tech world of the Third Millennium, the looming threat of international and domestic terrorism, and a Church floundering to regain credibility in the wake of countless scandals, Fr. Anthony Buś weaves a bold thread, through the intensely personal sharing of his own journey, to reconnect with the deeper meaning and purpose of life.

This provocative story of an inner-city Chicago priest will profoundly move the hearts of Christians and non-Christians alike to recognize the abiding mystery of a hidden presence that sustains and transforms the human person confronted with forces that undermine the dignity and nobility of life.

Fr. S. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC
Rector Emeritus of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy and Vice Postulator Emeritus for St. Faustinas Cause of Canonization

This intensely personal journey toward holiness and obedience to a call is inspiring in its enduring faithfulness to Gods mercy. The witness this story gives, of confronting spiritual trials and elusive triumphs with greater prayer, is a lesson in hope. It details how faith and trustful surrender sustain the hope that waits for what is unseen. That is why this book has no endingyet. The sequel should be earth-shattering.

A Mother's Plea calls forth heroism in the face of evil, integrity in the face of deceit, and trust in the face of vulnerability. If you have the courage to lift the sword of mercy, step into the battle larger than humanity, and on your knees plead salvation for the world this book is for you.

A Mother's Plea constitutes an inspiring diary of the life of a contemporary parish priest amidst the agonies and ecstasies of todays parish realities. Founded upon the pillars of Eucharistic Adoration, Our Lady's role as Mediatrix of All Graces, and a priestly humility in pursuit of holiness, this little work encourages an openness of the heart to Heaven's design for every Catholic parish: to be a sanctuary of Divine Mercy through the intercession of Our Lady, Mediatrix of Mercy.
