Twenty Tales of Irish Saints – A Tiber River Review

I recently had the pleasure of reading Twenty Tales of Irish Saints by Alice Curtayne.  This book is a lovely collection of legends about some of Ireland's saints.

Normally, I do not start off my review of a product with the description provided by either the publisher/producer or the seller (at least I do not recall if I do/did.)

A Call For Volunteers – Review Your Religious Education Material!

Over the past couple of weeks I have exchanged letters with a bishop who did not like my religious education critiques or my reference to the USCCB's Catechetical list (The List) as a magic eight ball. He took my comments as an insult directed at the bishops' wisdom and teaching. To avoid any misunderstandings, I won't be using that reference …
