New From Vero House:
The Seasons of a Short, Holy Life:
Memorable Musings of a Poet Priest
by Rev. Duncan Reilly
Edited by Kenneth E. Nowell
He offered himself as a victim soul - sharing Christ's suffering - and was given the cross of Hodgkins lymphoma.
He lived just 33 years and a day.
Yet, during his short, holy life, Father Duncan Reilly produced a treasure trove of remarkable writings. His poetry spanned a broad emotional range, from the amusements of this world to deep reflections of the next. However, his memorable words were boxed for half a century after his death, even as his last surviving sibling remained determined that they would, someday, enlighten and amuse those who never knew him.
This book is the accomplishment of her goal. It is one you will want to read again and again.
