    One thought on “Last Mass”

    1. This book has some great lines, but it's the structure that I really love. A single arc comes together from individual paragraphs covering Iredell's formative years as a young Catholic in California, the history of Father Junípero Serra (a significant force in the early missionization of California), problems while trying to write the book, and larger reflections on the Church and world.

(Perhaps there's something in our mutual experience that won't let either of us put this history down) So reading this book felt uncannily like so [...]
