*The Long Yearning’s End: Stories of Sacrament and Incarnation*, Patrick Hannon, CSC, ’88M.Div. (ACTA Publications). The 21 stories here, three for each of the seven sacraments — baptism, reconciliation, eucharist, confirmation, matrimony, holy orders and the anointing of the sick — demonstrate how God is present wherever humanity finds itself. Through such stories as “Hustled by a Holy Man,” “Christ in Pigtails” and “Big Mac Sauce and Other Lessons on Love,” the author shows the presence of God’s grace in everyday life.
