    Spiritual Classic. Catholic Classic. Very Sublime.

    Will try to write a lengthy review later.

    An Attempt at a Lengthy Review:

    I titled it as an attempt, because I am very much certain that I will not be able to express what transpired in me as I read this novel.

    I agree with my Goodreads Friend, Cathy in defining this novel as a ‘deceptively quiet book’ and that seems to be in fact very apt.

    On the surface, it looks like a simple tale of an ordinary young Catholic priest and his priestly mission in a parish in the rural France. But that is only the deception. What is behind this simple tale is a narration of many spiritual struggles. It is here Bernanos proves to be more than a simple story teller.

    Few of the spiritual struggles/theological questions analysed are:
    1. What is Prayer? Is it possible to pray at all times with full faith?
    2. What is the meaning of life/eternal Life in front of death?
    3. What are the meanings of theological virtues – Faith, Hope and Charity?
    4. Is God always present in our lives? Or do we find grace everywhere and every time?
    5. The question of loneliness and priests; the question of celibacy and priests; priest’s devotion to Our Lady; etc.

    All these issues/struggles/doubts are analysed in a sublime way as only a great writer/spiritual guide/theologian who is illuminated by Divine wisdom can.

    Bernanos was a devout Catholic and he wanted to be a priest. Thankfully, after a short period of time in seminary, he thought it was not his calling and so came out of seminary. He remained a devout Catholic and became a great writer. Surely, God knew what Bernanos was called for and Bernanos responded to that call. I am very much grateful to God and to Bernanos.

    P.S. I have a tendency to collect some books as my ‘death bed companions’- the books of my last days. Till now I have decided on one (Death Comes for the Archbishop) and now this will be added to that list.

    Deceptively quiet book which starts off very slowly; though I knew it had to be going somewhere, it is easy to see why some readers miss its depths—I stopped and started it several times myself. And then…!

    The gist of the story is an inexperienced, young priest arrives at his first parish, a little place out in the country and begins to keep a diary. We also learn he is poor, devout, idealistic and ascetic. None of these traits particularly endear him to his parishioners. He seems to have but o

    The gist of the story is an inexperienced, young priest arrives at his first parish, a little place out in the country and begins to keep a diary. We also learn he is poor, devout, idealistic and ascetic. None of these traits particularly endear him to his parishioners. He seems to have but one fellow cleric friend, a worldly priest, de Torcy, who would have him ‘toughen up’ and stand up for himself. Sometimes, I confess I felt a little exasperated with our curé myself. Other times, his self-effacing meekness brought out my motherly instincts and I wanted to help this young clergyman—who so many seemed to despise or take advantage of. What makes the saga so compelling is the gentle, uncomplaining way the new priest relates his many failures and humiliations. As his audience we see his kindnesses misunderstood and his simple mistakes turned against him. And yet he is determined to go out and visit all within his parish despite mounting health problems.

    Most of the ‘action’ – if it can even be called that – in this novel occurs in the brilliantly constructed conversations between the curate and another character: a confused little girl, an atheist doctor, a long-grieving countess, her malicious teenage daughter, and a soldier of fortune to name a few. It is in these epic dialogues George Bernanos’ reason for writing this testimony to faith is truly revealed.

    It isn’t an action book. It’s much, much better than that! I can see why some – used to reading a different sort of literature – have discounted this book. It has to be read carefully, slowly and perceptively. Also, some background on the author, George Bernanos, and the French movement, positivism, would be extremely beneficial.

    Highly recommended! One of the most faith-affirming books I’ve read this year!

    Κείμενο μεστό, βρίθον θεολογικών αναφορών, πλήρες νοημάτων. Η δομή τού ημερολογίου εξυπηρετεί την παράθεση μεταφυσικής φύσης ερωταπαντήσεων, ανησυχιών και συλλογισμών του καθολικού Μπερνανός. Στη λογική αυτή, καθίσταται ξεκάθαρος ο συμβολισμός: Ο εφημέριος ακολουθεί τα βήματα του Ιησού προς το μαρτύριο και τη λύτρωση, εν μέσω ενός απόντος ποιμνίου, μια έμπλεης πλήξης κοινότητας. Εκεί που ένας αμέτοχος μεταφυσικών αναζητήσεων αναγνώστης (όπως εγώ) και λάτρης της λογοτεχνίας στοχάζεται περί της μα
