On the second day I was reading this book I said: "Very good." On Aug 5 I said: "Oh, it's very good and its Catholicity can be seen on every page, In the hands of a non-Catholic its material (it's fictional) would have been distorted, It's exciting too." On August 9 I said: "I read a few chapters in Blessed Are the Meek. I have only two chapters left to read. Oh, what a story. The glory of the 5th Crusade! It is so good, so wonderful. It stands in a class entirely unique. It's great." I read 33 books in 1944, 14 fiction and 19 non-fiction. At the end of the year I selected this book as the best book I read in 1944 ( )

A very engaging story. I have no idea how accurate it is, but it is inspiring to read. Interesting for history too. The author tries to give insight into the motivation of the man who became St. Francis of Assisi. ( )
