Very Funny!
You've lived through latin masses.
You've struggled through May crownings and Vatican II.
Years later, you can still recite the Act of Contrition by heart.
You even gave up chocolate for lent.
For all those who lived it and those who wondered,
here is an affectionate look at the glorious mysteries of GROWING UP CATHOLIC.

Amusing "guide for the faithful, the fallen, and everyone in-between", this book takes the reader back to the Catholicism that existed before the mid 1960's, poking gentle fun at nuns, Latin masses, and parochial school uniforms. If you grew up Catholic, and are of a certain age, you'll find much to identify with.

This is real close to the true experience. Believe me, I know. my first 8 years of school was spent with these people.

Funny stuff, especially if you survived 12 years of Catholic school. Bought this for a friend.

This a fun read for anyone but especially for those who have been associated with the Roman Catholic church during the pre-Pope John XXIII. It triggers memories when reading any page in this book. Some examples and details were topics I had not thought of in 40 years yet had been a daily part of my growing up years. The overall tone is even not disrespectful.
