Practicing Catholic | [James Carroll]

Practicing Catholic

Brilliantly wresting meaning from the historical, social and religious strands of his story, Carroll illuminates the Church's transformation from reactionary monolith to an institution in which the deepest aspects of faith are being called into question. Carroll reveals his own story--as a Catholic boy in the 1940s and '50s, as a seminarian and priest in the crucible of the 1960s and early '70s, and as a committed but questioning Catholic today--with an emotional impact reminiscent of his An American Requiem.

Publisher's Summary

James Carroll delivers a tour-de-force look at what it means to be a Catholic today - set against the rich history of the Catholic Church in America.

Brilliantly wresting meaning from the historical, social and religious strands of his story, Carroll illuminates the Church's transformation from reactionary monolith to an institution in which the deepest aspects of faith are being called into question.

Carroll reveals his own story--as a Catholic boy in the 1940s and '50s, as a seminarian and priest in the crucible of the 1960s and early '70s, and as a committed but questioning Catholic today--with an emotional impact reminiscent of his An American Requiem.

Practicing Catholic is for the millions of practicing, questioning, or lapsed Catholics and others who are searching for a way to reconcile the acts of Church leaders with the faith and the Church they still want to claim as their own.

    "PRACTICING CATHOLIC? NEITHER!"

    The title and cover photo are deceptive. Do not be fooled as I was.
    This book is a just diatribe against the Vatican and what traditional Catholics believe.
    St. John Bosco stated that you can tell if something is Catholic by its faithfulness to the Magisterium, the Eucharist and Mary. He dissents on all three. This book is just what you expect from an ex-priest who has bought into the liberal agenda of the 1960s (Hans Kung and friends). He dissents from the Vatican on the usual hot button issues. Much of what he writes about is based on the media hear say and lacks much impartial scholarship.
