    eBook stroyki.pro ´ River of Fire ePUB ´ River of PDF or river book, fire ebok, River of pdf, River of Fire PDF/EPUBIt is possible that I started out reading this book as penance for some religious failing of mine I was brought up in the typical American suburban religious faith We went to the church that was within walking distance of the house my parents purchased on the GI Bill It happened to be a Missouri Synod Lutheran church and when my mother discovered that she was not allowed to vote because of her womanNess she ceased attending and reverted to listening to the Episcopal cathedral of her roots

Not my genre but I picked it up on a whim I could not put it downI went through 12 years of Catholic school and along with my 5 brothers and sisters am no longer a practicing Catholic But my life has been so influenced good and bad by the experience of growing up Catholic my parents’ strong faith moral compass and compassion for the oppressed; vs the guilt confusion and neurosis from trying to obey the strict rules of the church particularly pre Vatican III’m a person that tends to see the glass half empty so I have assumed that the religious life is misery I think Father

    eBook stroyki.pro ´ River of Fire ePUB ´ River of PDF or river book, fire ebok, River of pdf, River of Fire PDF/EPUBThis is a remarkable memoir by Sr Helen Prejean She is probably best known for her book Dead Man Walking and her relentless work on behalf of prison reform especially her work with prisoners on death row But this book is not a retelling of Dead Man Walking Not at all It is an engaging account of Sr Helen's early life journey and her gradual awakening and discovery of her life's real work I grew up immersed in Catholicism with all of the kid curiosity about nuns and that whole way of life I was a small child in the 1950's and so have memories of the pre Vatican2 Catholic Church I was a high school student in a rigorous Catholic high school post Vatican2 and so was witness to the obvious changes in the nuns who taught at the school For me part of the delight in this book was Sr Helen's fresh and real presentation of her life as a nun He

    eBook stroyki.pro ´ River of Fire ePUB ´ River of PDF or river book, fire ebok, River of pdf, River of Fire PDF/EPUBThis book wasn't entirely what I was expecting I have the greatest admiration and respect for Sister Helen Prejean and am glad that she has been so vocal about her opposition to the death penalty She has also been a fierce advocate for the inclusion of women and LGBT people in the Catholic Church She is someone that I truly admire So I came into this book with some great expectations about it I had not read any of her previous books And I knew only the bare minimum about her So for me this book was a true revelation as it gave me a very intimate look into her innermost life She was very candid about her life and I appreciated that candor I also appreciated the deep dive she did into Catholic theology and the ways in which it changed after Vatican II happened There were parts in the middle where it started to get bogged down in lofty terminology and aesthetics But
