The great Magdalens (Essay index reprint series). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Here are over 20 true stories of women who had been guilty of adultery, murder, fornication and abortion, plus engaged in hatred, envy, lying and other sins -- yet found forgiveness, mercy, healing and peace through Our Lord Jesus Christ. These women were as passionate in atonement as they had formerly been in sin. Some had been rejected by their partners in sin; others had to make a supreme effort and tear themselves away. Some had children. Some were punished by civil law. Some had to turn their backs on riches. Some had to disentangle themselves from political relationships. But all converted and spent the rest of their lives doing penance -- a pattern that will be repeated till the End of Time by many other Great Magdalens. 364 Pp. PB. Impr.
About the Author: Msgr. Hugh Francis Blunt was a priest and author of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, serving the Archdiocese of Boston. After feeling a call to the priesthood as an altar boy, he received Holy Orders in 1901 before working at the Boston Pilot as an editor. He later obtained a parish school of 1,900 pupils at St. John's Church in Cambridge, and was declared Monsignor by Pope Pius XII in 1944. It has been said that he contributed to "almost every Catholic magazine here and abroad", in addition to his many Catholic books and poems. His works include Great Wives and Mothers, Great Penitents, Witnesses to the Eucharist, and The Great Magdalens. Father Blunt died in 1957.
