By: Selected by Wendy M. Wright
Caryll Houselander (1901-54) an English Catholic laywoman, artist, and visionary, was driven by a strong identification with the poor that enabled her in fresh and insightful ways, to proclaim the "Christing of the World." Wright interweaves texts and images into an intimate encounter with a fascinating woman, a "divine eccentric," and a gifted reader of souls.
Wendy M. Wright is professor of theology at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Her books include Heart Speaks to Heart, Sacred Heart and Francis de Sales.
