Reviews - What do customers think about Patriotic Leaders of the Church?

Fills the gap  Aug 1, 2007
Fink's book is an excellent collection of biographical essays on largely unknown Catholic figures from the recent and not-so-recent American past. When most American Catholics think of the history of the Church, they instinctively think of Europe. "Patriotic Leaders of the Church" reminds us that Church history is filled with the deeds of many exemplary American Catholics, including Archbishop John Hughes (you'll learn how he acquired the nickname "Dagger John"), Bishop Fulton Sheen, Cardinal James Gibbons, and Archbishop John F. Noll (founder of Our Sunday Visitor, this book's publisher.)

"Dagger John" Hughes is a personal favorite. When 19th century nativists threatened to burn down Catholic churches in New York City, he rallied the faithful and reminded city authorities in blunt terms that they had an obligation to defend all of New York's citizens and their places of worship. From the book: "He believed in standing up for his and his flock's rights. 'If any single Catholic church is burned in New York,' he warned, 'the city will become a second Moscow.' The reference was to the burning of the Russian city by Napoleon Bonaparte's soldiers."

Fink is to be commended for filling a yawning gap in our history.
