Item description for Serious Sounds by John Moriarty...
A wonderful walk through the story of Moriarty's childhood on a small farm in north Kerry, and his lifelong engagement with traditional Catholic sacraments, taking as his point of departure Philip Larkin's poem 'Church Going'--a richly meditative essay of extraordinary resonance that begins with a visit to the island of Inis Fallen on Loch Leine, Ireland.

Five favorite quotes of book 3, most voted on by readers, continued:
3. "This is the President of the United States Stefanie Paylin. I'm here speaking today to all nations. We have been invaded by an intelligent alien race that caught us off guard. We didn't act in a timely matter to inform the rest of the world and to properly prepare ourselves to defend against this sudden attack that could have been avoided. For this I apologize....."
The President continues her speech to the world, ."..I apologize to you, your families, your friends and this planet for the condition you are in. I'm not sure if everyone can hear this, but I need you to stay strong for the race and humanity of our species. Don't let these aliens take over our minds and beat us. We are a strong species and we can fight this. Right now, there are others not on Earth, trying to fight for us. I need you to pray with me, to give them strength, so they can succeed. Right now I'm going to take a moment of silence, while I hope and pray with you....."
A tear runs down President Paylin's face as General Peters stands behind her with bandages around his body.
."...Amen...I need you to stay strong, wherever you are and fight this with me. Don't give in to these parasites taking over your minds and bodies. Fight this battle, just like we fought similar battles over the centuries. Stay with me and may God bless you all," President Paylin says while walking away from a microphone.
4. Dark Energy queen: 'We are here to help your species and other species from obliterating themselves.'
'Your species is self-destructing themselves. A social transformation is needed. The United States political system is backwards and stuck in capitalism and a monetary-based economy. Many other big countries follow the same pattern. The poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer. We analyzed hundreds of nanomoles from politicians, CEOs of banks and world leaders over the past few days. Lies, deception, greed, interests, control, debt, profits and corporatocracy are the main words in every part of these people's brains. We would end this corrupt system and create the perfect new world system of everyone being treated as equals.'
