Here are two examples: In mentioning St. Hyacinth, the author states (He was probably also good at rolling with the punches, being named after a flower and all.) In a second example, she relates the story of St. Cecilia (in a chapter called "A Stiff-Necked Believer"). Here the author states, "To kill her the Romans locked her in the baths of her palace...for several days in order to suffocate her. Instead, she sang, which is why today she is known as the patron saint of music. Finally, an executioner was sent in to cut off her head. (I guess they'd had enough of her singing.)
These remarks which were evidentely meant to sound pithy, fell resolutely flat, and the book is laden with them, to the point of irritation. This book had a very light, and some may find, slightly irreverent tone.
I was hoping for an inspiring read, but unfortunately felt the material too "watered down" and insipid. It would better be suited for younger readers or those looking for a "comic book" edition.
J+M+J Thank you!
