Read full description of the books:
Welcome to the world of Sean Patrick, his five brothers, Mama, and a host of other lovable characters. Readers of Catholic Digest will need no introduction to Patrick, whose award-winning column, "Patrick's Corner, " is one of the magazine's most popular features. With wit, warmth, and wonder, "Sean-o" shares with his audience the joy of growing up Catholic in the 1940s and 50s. Meet Fr. Francis X. O'Phelan, Bloke, Charlie, Din Tracy, Duffy, Sister Sr. Patrick, and Edward, Fr. Guilhooley's Irish setter, who populate the downtown streets of a U.S. city during the post-World War II years, a time when life seemed more simple, defined, and hospitable. From the friendly priests of St. Columbkille Parish, through Forty Hours devotions and the orderliness of the Catholic school, to Irish wakes, 5:45 AM Mass, and gatherings in the church hall, Patrick illuminates the traditions, events, beliefs, and practices that have made Catholicism such a dynamic force in the lives of so many people. This delightful volume will bring back memories for those who grew up in the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church, and offer an engaging view of this time in church history for all.

Read information about the authorHi,
I'm Sean, and I believe that people have far more potential than they give themselves credit for. I believe that everyone can find their calling, achieve success and happiness, and feel in control of their fate.
Through my writing, I hope to educate and inspire, to convince people to look at themselves and the world a little differently, and to be able to use these insights to improve not only their lives, but the lives of everyone they touch as well.
If that floats your boat, I think you'll like my work, and I hope you find it helpful.
