The Power and The Glory by Graham Greene

  • May 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

The Power and the Glory was inspired by Graham Greene's research into the violent persecution of Catholics in Mexico in the late 1920s and early 1930s.  On the surface, the novel tells the story of a nameless priest attempting to flee the country to escape the violence descending on him.  Scratching the surface reveals deeper themes such as man’s inhumanity to man and the possibility of redemption. Bring your tequila and rosary, and we’ll discuss what it was about this work that drew the ire of both Catholics and anti-Catholics alike.

    Wonderful group discussion. I left feeling mentally invigorated, and spiritually...? But, I neglected to say before I left what a great host and hostess! Thanks so much for the hospitality and good eats and a most convivial atmosphere, Kimberly.
