I have to admit, I did not care for the book, although it did lead to lively discussion for the book group. I didn't care for the life-style or language in the book. However, I did like the line that seemed to sum up the stories:
"The half-life of love is forever."
While on vacation, I finished reading My Life with the Saints by James Martin, SJ. The book was
James Martin is a Jesuit priest, and prolific author. In this book, he writes a sort of memoir based on how he learned of and developed love for seventeen different saints. The stories of the saints are woven into his own life, sharing how each saint affected his life. The book is very readable and entertaining and educational. I really enjoyed it. I hope that he continues to write about more saints. Reading the book has inspired me to learn more about some of the saints mentioned. I was especially taken with his writing about Joseph. I found Martin's writing to be quite insightful. A very good read, whether you are Catholic or not.
