James J. Thompson Jr.
St. Francis was that rarest of revolutionaries: one impelled by love rather than by hatred veneered with the catchwords of brotherhood.
Fr. Hugh Kennedy, the narrator and protagonist, lacks glamor, jets to no international colloquia on Third World grievances, and worries not a whit over his sexuality.

Waugh never attempted to palliate his sins or weasel out of their consequences; he believed in the fallen state of man because he clearly discerned his own bent nature.
