Re: The Trouble with Hagiography

Devra - this is very profound and edifying.  C. S. Lewis wrote about this (even though he was not Catholic - he died "!0 years too soon" someone once remarked before talking his way into the Church).  We must not airbrush over the faults of our heroes.  That's wny I loved the book "Saints Behaving Badly".  Jesus told French mystic Gabrielle Bossis "A Saint is not a saint all the time".   We are all "in process". Some of us get farther than others.  Some are canonized as martyrs for the faith, even though their life was far from virtuous.  There are a lot of ways to "steal Heaven".  Grace makes it possible.

Thoughtful, well written, and very reasonable, Devra.  I am so impressed with you as a writer, wife, and mother.  Your family of origin is amazing.  And you & Max have a wonderful family as well.  We are blessed to know you all!  Thanks again for your anointed writing!

Devra,

I really enjoyed your thoughts.  I was raised in the Kennedy Kingdom of Massachusetts and followed the Democrat Party religiously (as most Massachusetts Cathoilcs do), but 1973 changed all that (Roe v Wade).  I was part of the Reagan Revolution and Peter Kreeft was one of my guides . . .  I missed the Kresta conference but have enjoyed hearing about the thoughtful and engaging talks . . .  thank you for your insights and commentary!

Stay informed
