One thought on "ANNOUNCEMENTS – From the guillotine to freedom through the truth that will set us free: "Let nothing disturb you ', literary gem Ariel S. Levi Gualdo

  1. Ho terminato di leggere il romanzo ieri notte, difficile staccarsi dalla lettura, ma viste le bellissime riflessioni che alcuni protagonisti offrono sarebbe bene meditarle con calma.
    Padre Ariel narra con uno stile avvincente e molto originale le drammatiche vicende vissute dalle suore Carmelitane durante il periodo del ”terror” revolutionary.
    Grazie allimmedesimazione profonda con il personaggio del cappellano gesuita l’autore è riuscito a dare risposte profonde e molto convincenti agli interrogativi delle suore che sono poi gli stessi di chi vive drammi legati al dolore e a una fede che è umana e quindi condizionata da dubbi e paure.
    In addition to, sembrerà strano, ma si ravvisano molte similitudini tra la persecuzione dell’epoca e quella attuale.
    Ora nelle mie preghiere mi raccomando anche queste coraggiose e simpatiche suore.
    Unica mia pecca il fare confusione tra i nomi delle protagoniste.
