Dan Barry’s View from the Pew

Posted by Censor Librorum on Apr 19, 2008 | Categories: Humor

Dan Barry is a reporter for the NY Times.   His regular columns included “About New York” and “This Land.”   His book, Pull Me Up, is a memoir of growing up an an Irish-American family in Long Island, and his struggle as an adult with cancer.danbarrylarge.jpg

Barry wrote a wonderful article for the  Times that appeared just before Pope Benedict’s visit.   “The View from My Pew” beautifully articulates what many American Catholics feel about their faith and themselves. I especially loved his description of himself as “the classic stumbling, grumbling, trying-to-sort-it-all-out American Catholic.”
