Well this made me stop and do some research. From Wiki: “Camilo Torres Restrepo was a Colombian socialist, Roman Catholic priest, a predecessor of liberation theology and a member of the National Liberation Army guerrilla organisation. During his life, he tried to reconcile revolutionary Marxism and Catholicism.”

jchawkins That's an ambitious reconciliation to attempt. 5mo
Suet624 😂😂 yes, but I get it. 5mo

The young man in this book credits San Martin de Porres Velázquez for healing his injury. I looked him up: “[He] was a Peruvian lay brother of the Dominican Order who was beatified in 1837 by Pope Gregory XVI and canonized in 1962 by Pope John XXIII. He is the patron saint of mixed-race people, barbers, innkeepers, public health workers, and all those seeking racial harmony.” I think I‘ll start chatting with him about that racial harmony bit.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds like someone we should know more about. 5mo

Thanks to LibraryThing for a review copy. “Two Catholic priests fall in love amid deadly conflicts between the Colombian government, insurgent groups, and drug cartels.” Sure, I‘d like that one please. And it has arrived.

Reggie You have to tell me if they die. 7mo

Suet624 @Reggie I can't tell if you're kidding. 7mo
Suet624 @RaimeyGallant I know! I saw the synopsis and it seemed right up my alley. 7mo
Reggie Sorry Sue, I was. I just read the synopsis and just thought there‘s no other way. But, I‘m gonna read it so I‘ll find out for sure. 7mo
