Sr. Mary Clare is both amazingly compelling in her account of how St. Benedict Center came to be and its "rise and fall", although using that term is probably not the best way to describe what the Center is all about. Her analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the founders and the members is perceptive if not too tragic in some places.
Keeping the Faith at Harvard is a sad book, not because it is a sad story but because in many ways Sr. Mary Clare seems to be mourning what she sought, found and perhaps, not lost, but had to move on from. While her portrayal is accurate (some members will probably not agree but Sr. Mary Clare foresees this, knowing from long experience that there are some who will see only the negative and some who will see only the positive,) it is heavy and misses the joy that continues to be hallmark of St. Benedict Center and the religious communities that are a part of it or have evolved from it.
The members of St. Benedict Center and the people who have been a part of it informally have suffered much, more than most people would believe. For some the scars will always be a permanent part of their lives.Read more ›
