…the Cross that took away indignity from suffering and made pain and poverty a means of fellowship with Christ. ~ Bishop Jean Marie Latour
This novel satisfies square N1 of 2015 Classics Bingo: Classic of the Americas
I had no expectations for this novel, knowing nothing about it. I suppose I should have added a spoiler alert – the title you know – yeah, he dies. I found this very enjoyable (not that he died – the novel in entirety). If you have read much of my blog, you’ve probably inferred I am a Christian. If you’ve read my blog carefully, you might also have correctly inferred that I am not Catholic. I will confess a degree of ignorance regarding my brothers and sisters on that side of the theological aisle, and I will finally confess that I found the lives of Bishop Latour and Father Vaillant to be inspirational.
