When I lived in Sedona, Arizona, many years ago I made friends with a wonderful spiritual woman. A few years ago she wrote her first novel. It is about a New-Age woman and a Catholic woman walking through the famous red rocks of that part of Arizona who are kidnapped. IN the course of the novel I found great insights into the differences between New Age and Catholic thought in a “user-friendly” mode of fiction. Try it you’ll love it.
Ever Green by Sandy Anderson
I read a long autobiography of the famous Jesuit, John LaFarge, son of the famous American painter. I found this little gem of spiritual humor:
“Ministering to children in a TB hospital, I met a boy with only 32 cents to his name who had lain four years in a bed on the top floor of the TB pavilion and had only one worry in the world: “Why does God seem to treat people so unequally? “The rich folk in Fifth Avenue, NYC (then a posh part of the city) have only hell to look forward to; yet He’s given me, a sinner, His grace and with it the hope of heaven.”
A terrific homily from the deacon who, with his wife Ruth, wrote with me the book What the Saints Said about Heaven, and who reads this blog, said I could put up this homily of his that I thought very powerful.
