Glory of the Olive

by Susan Claire Potts

The time of prophecy approaches. The world is in turmoil. Wars, terrorism, disturbances of nature convulse civilization. A new pope moves to restore the dignity and splendor of age-old Catholic tradition and a bitter conflict ensues. Revolution threatens. The lines are sharply drawn between those who reject his mandate and those who embrace it. In a small city in Michigan, the people of Holy Martyrs parish—Dr. Catherine Anderson, the school principal, Fr. Thomas Riley, the parish priest, the Fortunatas, and a host of courageous and likable people—fight against the encroaching evil. A slice of Catholic life in a world that seems as remote as a distant land but which is as fresh as morning, bringing hope and, ultimately, triumph. A novel in which the main characters strive for what is good and beautiful and true.
