Product Description


Christine Schintgen’s gentle but penetrating sonnets ponder the mystery of goodness, of human struggle, defeat and victory, making visible each soul’s distinct character and mission within the vast communion of the Kingdom — in this place, in these late centuries of the phenomenon known as Canada. Lavishly illustrated by Joseph Ferrant’s extraordinary portraits of people of faith, this book will unfold its graces on many a mosquito-afflicted summer’s day and brutally cold winter’s night. It is a unique treasure.

~ Michael O’Brien
