In John 17 Jesus prays for the Church. Michael Cassidy contrasts Jesus’ vision and the Church’s mundane reality with care and prayerful reflection, asking: What should we do? How can we amend our ways? He studs his text with dozens of luminous and engaging anecdotes. This is an enormously readable and attractive book, permeated with Michael’s generous, engaging spirit and shot through with insights into the human condition.
