Revelations and Epiphanies
by Brian Doyle ’78 (Loyola Press)
A series of essays that capture the Catholic lay spirit, reminding readers of the bountiful blessings, wonders and mysteries of the world. From the questions 8-year-olds ask in Catholic education class about Communion—"What if I barf afterward and it comes up again? Is that a sin?—to the couple who held hands and leaped from the burning World Trade Center, the author celebrates the grace that is part of life.
