Jose Gironella, "The Cypresses Believe in God", the most powerful novel of the Spanish Civil War.

We gave that book to a Communist for Christmas and he said he enjoyed it, though it didn’t change his mind.
I am sorry for the times I have publicly criticized others on this forum, especially traditional Catholic religious, and any other scandalous posts and pray that no one reads or believes these false and ignorant statements.

That was EXCELLENT!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
