8vo - 23 x 15.5 cm.; 298 pp. Subtitled "Une Biographie du Père Émile Marie Brière, Tome 1, 1917-1975". Illustrated with 8 pages of b/w photographs. Fr. Brière was a close confidante and spiritual guide of the late Catherine de Hueck Doherty, foundress of Madonna House. Stories about Fr. B are many but my favourite is when, talking with a young woman who had a fairly low self esteem and struggled with her place in the world, he replied "Of all the women in the world, you are the most beautiful". She brightened and began to glow from the inside out. Fr. B continued "Well, maybe - there is Sophia Loren". As Cardinal Suenens once commented, as a quiet aside, about Pope John XXIII talking of the Holy Spirit, "Un bon mot, vraiment - un bon mot". Un homme vraiment vivant, un cadeaux du bon Dieu. Needless to say, the text is in French.
