Tom Casey SJ has published a partly autobiographical book called <em><a href=”;entry_id=20″ onmouseover=”window.status=’ ‘;return true;” onmouseout=”window.status=”;return true;” title=”Link”>Music of Pure Love</a></em>. <br />
<blockquote>”In a time of bleak skepticism he [Thomas Casey] sounds a note of joyous idealism and personal generosity and a call for love in a self-centered world.” Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R.</blockquote><br />
<blockquote>In this lyrical book, Thomas Casey sweeps us along on a pilgrimage toward pure love. Carefully distinguishing purity from prudery, he invites us to embark upon this journey with angels to unleash the limitless potential with which we are graced. Avoiding pop culture’s sentimentality, Casey uses angels to illuminate the way of life to which we are all invited, one that brings us ever closer to genuine holiness. “This book,” the author says, “is concerned above all with seeing ourselves and our world in a new way. This new vision unfolds in the light. The darkness that likes to lay siege to our souls must be firmly refused and forcefully rejected; the light is more than ready to embrace us.” To show how we are called to change our lives, he offers, among other illustrations, examples from popular culture, the opera Don Giovanni, and an imaginative reconstruction of the early Christian saint Cecilia.
