The stories focus on characters and events that have colored the life of this Franciscan friar in ways that entertain and teach. Father Elstan writes with a perspective that brings smiles, inner giggles - and serious reflection. It is a result of fifty years of study and research as a Franciscan, as well as an inborn talent to turn a phrase. His writings are timeless. They are meant for people of all ages, sizes, colors - and all faiths, for Father Elstan is an ecumenical man.Father Elstan is a storyteller who generates and communicates life through his masterful command of the English language. He sees the humor in the sport of life and how God may have winked when he created us. He accepts and loves people as they are, yet cajoles us to be more like Jesus. He is a happy priest who swings from the branches of the tree of life, enjoying the fruit along the way, never upsetting the balance of nature, but enhancing it in playful and unpretentious fashion. He is a character, a one of a kind, a bright and funny man. He is a man of intellectual gifts and lovable ways. And, yes, he is holy and humble.Through PRINTS OF A PRIEST, published in June, 1996, Father Elstan was wrapped in a beautiful package for the world to open. The book is a high quality, glossy covered, 209-page beauty containing, in addition to the stories, a synopsis of Fathers life, and several color photos.
