Here is a memoir that puts you in the heart and soul of the writer. A great picture of the early life of a seminarian and priest who has gone on to write so honestly and thoughtfully of the Roman Catholic Church.

Memories of ex- nun ( I am one) are hard to write. But Karen has written one of the best. It is just so hard to explain a life that cuts off your emotions, takes away any initiative and asks you to strive for perfection. Yaweee!

This book next to my bible has been my companion for about 15 years. I meditate using the table of contents as a starter; the inside is even more time worthy.


Pius XII: The Hound of Hitler

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Gerard Noel has written the balanced picture of Pope Pius XII. He shows us the Pius who thought he could save the Vatican by being conciliatory towards Hitler. Noel brings in the most significant person in Pius' life and paints her correctly. Most biographers give her three or four sentences.
I am sorry about the title. I see no significance in the word hound. I recommend it highly as it seems to be the truest, most balanced presentation of a man who grew up only blocks from St Peter's Square who never went to seminary and whose only jobs were Vatican appointments. A man whose diplomacy had disastrous results, he was a throw back to the imperial papacy and he believed infallibility resided in his person. His fears were legitimate but Pius lack the courage to become the greatest pope.
