THE DEED OF GOD by Father John W. Lynch
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Father John Lynch's previous book of verse, A Woman Wrapped In Silence, has taken its place over the years among Mariological best sellers. Now employing the same verse form, Father Lynch renews our understanding of the institution of the Mass in this deeply moving, spiritually meditative book. From Christ's birth at Bethlehem the author traces His boyhood, public life, passion and death. As one Who of His own Will chooses sleep; He bows His head upon His breast. He dies. He continues with a history of the Mass ""a wheel that turns but to begin anew"" from the days of the early Church to the present. The Deed of God richly merits wide critical acclaim.
