"This book saved my priesthood."

Dignity And Duties Of The Priest (aka Selva) by St. Alphonsus de Liguori is one of the most significant books which has ever been printed in the history of the world. Yes, it is a must.
The Redemptorist Fathers in Brooklyn, St. Louis and Toronto used to print this volume back in the day along with the other works of St. Alphonsus, in English.
This volume is a collection of material for ecclesiastical retreats, rule of life and spiritual rules and is volume XII of the complete ascetical works of Saint Alphonsus de Liguori, Doctor of the Church and Bishop of Saint Agatha and Founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer.
