Splendor of Sorrow: What a Hard-Boiled Crime Reporter Discovered About the Love of Jesus and Mary by Eddie Doherty

A hard-as-nails reporter who wrote books with titles like Broadway Murders, Eddie Doherty spent his old age as a Catholic priest! In this masterpiece, he gives a hint of the spiritual visions that touched him so deeply as to change his life in ways no one could have foreseen.

Eddie found success, covering Al Capone and other thugs with flair. But his personal life was haunted by suffering. His wife died tragically -- at which point, he recounted, "I cursed God bitterly and violently." He left the Church and remarried, only to endure the death of his second wife. This time, Eddie did not curse God. Instead, sensing grace even in sorrow, he began again to receive Holy Communion.

As Eddie held these events in his mind and heart over the years, this unique masterwork was born. Through the redemption he experienced, he came to be fascinated by the workings of God's mercy. He grew determined to help others grasp how this world's sorrows are resplendent with Christ's light.

In this book, Eddie explores the Seven Sorrows of Mary, taking you into these great events as a participant. His main character, "the Blindman," watches them unfold in all their pain and splendor. Eddie brings saints and angels from throughout history into the story, relying on their insight to illuminate the mysteries taking place before them. Deeply felt, mesmerizing, and powerful, this cinematic book will change forever how you regard the mysteries of suffering and grace.
