Happy 50th anniversary, Fr. Fessio!

Dear friends of Ignatius Press,

This day marks the 50th anniversary of Ignatius Press

founder and editor Father Joseph Fessio, S.J.’s ordination

to the priesthood.

“You are a priest forever,” declares the Psalmist, “after

the order of Melchizedek” (Ps 110:4).
Prophetically, these words refer to Jesus Christ and

his priesthood, a priestly ministry in which Father Fessio shares.
Fifty years a priest is not “forever,” but it is certainly

a long time, humanly speaking. We thank the Lord

for fifty years of Father Fessio’s priestly ministry. And

we thank Father Fessio for his fidelity as a priest. He

has been a spiritual father to so many people,

including us at Ignatius Press.
Please pray for him and for all those whom

his ministry has touched.
In the Lord,
Mark Brumley
Ignatius Press

Fr. Fessio with Fr. Louis Bouyer in 1978, the year Ignatius Press was founded.
