Giving Up Stealing for Lent!

Our next excerpt comes from Brother Charles Madden OFM Conv. recollections of his childhood. As the youngest of 11 children, he has some stories! This is a book that in one sense excerpts well as the chapters are short and stand pretty much on their own; but excerpts poorly because as you go through the book you really feel you are getting to know his family and thus the latter stories (or those you re-read) take on more significance-thus a short excerpt doesn't do the whole experience justice.

I am going to give you a taste of these stories over the next few days-this post will remain on top for this short series
