Conversations with Mgr. Escriva de Balaguer (Scepter 15s.) AT a time when the more progressive minds are vexed with such problems as whether or not it would be prudent to combine the sacraments of Holy Orders and Matrimony in one brief and time-saving ceremony or which toast would make the best Host at a Dutch Mass, Mgr. Escrivr.'s new book may seem a trifle 'irrelevant.
"Conversations with Mgr.
Escriva de Balaguer." answers questions put to him by a number of American and European journalists amongst whom are correspondents of the New York Times and Le Figaro. In his answers it is immediately apparent that sanctity rather than celibacy, humility rather than hormones, are the matters which most concern Mgr. Escriva.
He actually states that a woman can achieve sanctity through housework — I ask you! No, wonder this man has been accused of rocking the boat. Read the book and you will see what I mean.
