A modern Catholic anthology which is amazingly complete, in fact it holds as many innovations and surprises as a new and super dime store, so don't be misled by thinking Sister Mary Louise has gathered the pious and sentimental. She has shown how very modern and how truly Catholic the religiouse can be and how broad (in scope) Roman Catholic literature is -- poetry, satire, essays, criticism, biography. To Catholic and Protestant alike this volume will bear witness to the very evident fact of a Catholic Renaissance of literature. A good book for the moment when you have that indefinite feeling ""I want something serious and worthwhile to read."" Whatever your taste, whatever your mood you'll always find ""something to read"" in this volume.
