    Delightful book

    I used to live in Tucson, Arizona where Fr. Andrew Greeley was teaching (Visiting Professor, Sociology) at the University of Arizona. He was in residence at our parish. It was always a treat when he was saying Mass because (1) the altar server youth loved helping him and (2) he would always give us a special Irish blessing before he ended the Mass. This is a great book that can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life and all faiths. It is more from Irish culture than from religion (although religion is a very important part of Irish culture).
