Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book as part of a curriculum of ‘JustFath,’ a program intended to help one raise themselves to a companionate awareness for those whose lives are played out on the fringes of society. With this awareness one may be moved to action. After reading a couple of preceding ‘Just Faith’ books on the subject a reader would be hungry to appreciate where this action would come from and to learn how it manifests itself into success stories. In the end the ultimate goal in the stories of this book finds a common thread; the aim of that action. That aim is directly set towards bringing dignity and social justice to all those in the fringe of society.
This dignity is not brought out through government sponsored entitlement programs. In fact these programs don’t even take place in America, though there are indeed American versions. These stories take place on a world stage, India, Rwanda, Nicaragua, Zambia, Mexico; holding a broader view, beyond American life. Yet the solutions are brought in part by Americans through the programs of Catholic Relief Services. While the CRS is funded by the Catholic Church, the actors are not necessarily all Catholic. They don’t have to be this book is higher than Catholicism, it is about the restoration of the “Oneness” of mankind; story by story.
The stories told don’t fit the paradigm of the average American that has been programmed by public education and steeped in American television ‘sit-com’ that portray the ‘American Family’ in the American situation that is white washed of human suffering. After all who wants to be entertained by episodes of suffering? Is that even possible? The suffering is not what one sees on those commercials of flies on the swollen bellies of starving children in commercials during those ‘sit-coms’.

This is a wonderful book. It has a variety of stories from around the world about Catholic Relief Services and how they help people to get out of poverty and to deal with violence. The stories are not "heart-warming," but rather very real. I really appreciated this book.

This book gave me insight into the activities of Catholic Relief Services. I was very impressed with the effectiveness of the program and how recipients shared their success with others.
The book was thoroughly researched, well written and increased my understanding of how people can succeed with the proper help and have hope in the future.
An excellent book!
