Book Review: Being Catholic Now

Welcome to my blog!

I'm currently reading Being Catholic Now. Kerry Kennedy, one of eleven children of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, has gathered these essays from prominent Catholics throughout the United States. They range from priests to well known celebrities.

I'm really enjoying reading these essays, especially the ones from well-known figures such as Cokie Roberts, Bill O'Reilly and Bill Maher. The essays are well-written and presented in an almost conversational style. I really feel like the author is talking to me personally about his/her views on the Church, its impact on him/herself and its impact on the world at large. It's interesting to read how these prominent people weave the Church and its teachings into their lives.

While I think that people of any religion can gain insight from this book, I feel it's especially relevant to Catholics.

Feel free to leave a comment below.

Thanks for reading my blog!
