Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971766207, Hardcover)

Father Michael Doyle, a long-time servant of his church and his community in Camden, New Jersey, one of the poorest cities in the country, wrote this book to "...call Camden to life. It is a cry to this generous nation, to people of good will everywhere, to do what needs to be done and what surely can be done, to make this city worthy of the thousands of children trying to grow up in it. It can become a beautiful city on the mile-wide Delaware River flowing between it and Philadelphia." He wrote these monthly letters over a period of years, beginning in 1984, not as the makings of a book, but as lifelines to many people, without whom Sacred Heart Church's many ministries in Camden would not have survived. To him they are the music, sad and glad, of some of the things that happen and have happened around Sacred Heart in Camden and also around the green fields of his childhood in Ireland.
