Cristeros




I'm reading Graham Greene's The End of the Affair for book group, and have been recalling his other Catholic novels, especially The Power and the Glory.

I have no idea why, but almost no online comments take Greene's Catholicism seriously.

The book group is the LGBT group at Manchester Central Library, and I am trying to work out why this is a chosen book. Is there a hint of homosexual feeling between Bendrix and Miles?

Oh, and the flag above is for Martin.

[BTW. There is a good article online at the TLS].

thanks for the flag. I have it also. Someday you need to make the long walk up the steps there. Its a terrific place to leave your burdens and just cry at the feet of someone who cares.

Did you know we have an annual gay pilgrimage to the basilica?
