 Our Description

This is the true story of Eugene Hamilton: a young man who dreamed of becoming a priest; a young man stricken with terminal cancer as his life was just beginning; a young man who, because of his exceptional spirituality, would receive special dispensation to be ordained early, who would become a priest just hours before he died.

This book is about the sacramental and the sacred, and how these transcendent realities become clear before human eyes in a story full of experiences familiar to all of us: high school proms and college speeches, medical tests and hospital visits, dreams denied and dreams come true.

Gene Hamilton was a son, a brother, a student, a deacon, and finally, a priest when he died in early 1997 at age twenty-five. This book is about what made Gene different and about the presence and action of God as He accomplishes His inscrutable will using the ordinary events of life. It is also a book about the meaning and purpose of the priesthood today.
