In this, his most prophetic and personal book, Father Donald Cozzens calls attention to a virtual "underground" church whose heart is beating for change and renewal. This church he describes as "a pilgrim people who believes that the Holy Spirit is loose in the world and whose rumors of wisdom might be found in any of God's people as well as their ordained leaders."
A celebrated priest uncovers the spiritual riches beneath a church covered in scandal and doubt.
At a time when many Catholics are questioning their church, Donald Cozzens sheds light on the widespread "underground church that cherishes the vision of a renewed and reformed church preached by Pope John XXIII, a church open to the currents of grace flowing through cathedrals and marketplaces, chanceries and ghettos, through women and men, through people of good will."
Writing in a fresh way about faith, prayer, communion, and church, Cozzens calls this new underground church "a pilgrim people that believes that the Holy Spirit is loose in the world and whose rumors of wisdom might be found in any of God's people as well as in their ordained leaders. I'm hardly alone in the underground church. I take comfort in that."
Cozzens describes and inspires a church "that wants to be simply adult a church not of children or adolescents hesitant to think and reflect on the lessons of human experience and their effort to live the gospel. A church closer to the spirit of Yves Congar and Teilhard de Chardin, to Dorothy Day and Mother Teresa, a church in step with the spirit of the gospel."
