No love here - A brilliant book!,
This review is from: No Love Here: A Priest's Journey (Paperback)
No Love Here is a self revealing story of a young mans mixed emotions detailing a love for his child- hood girlfriend
which became embroiled with the pull of his beloved Catholic Church. Subsequently the Church won the day and as
the story unfolds it was obvious hearts were broken. After ordination it became apparent that this young communicator
and his celebrity admirers from within the sporting and entertainment world in London proved distastfull for his clerical live- in house colleagues, especially their prolonged silences during meals noteably at the Christmas dinners.
Farther Martin then became increasingly concerned that his Priestly vocation was weakening and the further demands of
celibacy and lonelyness didn't help despite his total commitment to the calling. His priestly colleagues were also a disappointment and their Bishops equally so, confirming that the Church as presently structured had no place for him.
The reader at this point is predicting that the young priest realizing that he has unwisely chosen the wrong love, will at first opportunity return to his first love Joan, who was still unattached . But nothing could prepair us for the highs and lows of the cruel world of business which awaited an educated honest yet excellent salesman.
A great book by any standard.
