A novel idea...


I started reading a novel last night. I've not read a novel for a LONG time! I've been into bios of Saints mostly, but this one intrigued me when I saw it on the parish library shelf, as I'm very INTO Carmel (reading its history, spirit and saints) and saw the title Father Elijah, with Elijah being the 'father' of Carmelite spirituality. It's by Michael D. O'Brien, copyright 1996...and what a page turner!! I kept reading and am going to delve in again soon. It is so good and so TIMELY! It's really amazing to read what was in his mind some 13 years or more ago, and the events and things shaking the world and the Church today!! If you want a good novel for your summer reading, this should be one you get!
