Reviews - What do customers think about Fire Under My Feet: A Memoir of God's Power in Panama?

A Great Story, Simply Written  Jun 8, 2007
Rev. Leo Mahon, spent 12 years in Panama building a new model of a Catholic parish. Sent by the Archdiocese of Chicago, his 'experimental church' grew to be wildly successful and a powerful tool in not only changing the faith of many of the poorer people in Panama, but also became a challenge to the authorities in that country.

With the Church becoming fearful of what Father Leo and other had created, plus a Government that feared the power if a rising class of poor people eventually lead to Father Mahon leaving Panama and the Church model eventually closed down.

This book is a poweful witness to Faith moving a people and the man who helped make that happen. This book is simply written, but that is what makes this book good. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who would want to explore their Faith and how it can change lives.

A wonderful, energetic and idealistic adventure in Panama  May 26, 2007
Father Mahon is now Pastor Emeritus in my parish, Saint Mary of the Woods. After reading "Fire Under My Feet", I am moved by the adventure that Father Mahon experienced in Panama. I am reminded of how provincial and non-adventurous most of our lives are. This 12-year "experiment" in Panama packs a lifetime of experiences.

It is more perfect, more rewarding, more Christ-like being a priest among the poor than among the affluent. What a great gift to humanity to go into a poverty stricken town in Panama, live among the people and help them build a community. What a wonderful, energetic and idealistic adventure. I both admire and envy Father Leo Mahon for having lived this life of love, sacrifice and adventure.

Father Mahon clashes with the Catholic establishment of the 1960s in Panama that retained unsavory medieval practices such as the selling of prayers and sacraments for a fee. He clashes with incompetent Bishops and Cardinals that are poor leaders. He clashes with unjust governments. He fights to defend himself from official accusations of heresy that steal energy from his mission. His approach to Catholicism and ministry was 50 years ahead of its time, but there was a price to be paid for this. In the end, Father Mahon builds a Christian community in San Miguelito far improved from 12 years earlier but in the struggles his energy in Panama is nearly exhausted. The struggle between good and evil continues... but Father Mahon scores one for the good guys.
