In l940, the nation hovers on the brink of World War II, and a small and fearful six-year-old trembles on the brink of first grade at St. Marys School, Elgin. He will find himself plunged into a world of mystery, guided by white-robed nuns who speak a mysterious language and live in a separate world from ordinary people. He will become steeped in the liturgy and language of the Catholic Church as it presented itself at the time, and come to feel set apart from the non-Catholics and special, but not always in a good way. Charging into adolescence cars and girls and algebra he joins the St. Edward High School Green Wave (if only as a manager,) develops attitudes and a kind of identity if only as a class clown,) sets his sights on Notre Dame University and thinks about the priesthood, but not yet. And he works at the Bordons Ice Cream Factory and the Elgin Daily Courier News and Barnetts Junior Miss store and Edwards Jewelers but none of these venues give him a clue as to his future.

Tim Lott began to go through a self-transformation years ago. Little did he know that the quest for satisfaction in religion would be part of that satisfaction in his own approach towards a confidence that faith existed. He learned the hard way that there is more to a relationship with God than a once a week interlude. To this objective, the recurrent theme throughout GROWING UP CATHOLIC was that traditions and the way our ancestors practiced honoring God may not be good enough for us any longer. Struck by divorce and a calamity of events, the once 'down and out' Lott looked up and saw the figurative face of God reach out for him through the text of the Bible. Yes. In GROWING UP CATHOLIC: THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH, author Tim Lott divulges that his satisfaction in his own quest for truth correlated with his own need for knowing that faith was a vehicle for his own salvation aka determining his fate with where he stood with God. Maturing with the spirit literally before your eyes in this book, as Lott rationalizes his own faith and, then, the direction of his own faith in the face of doubt, (with GROWING UP CATHOLIC) he shows how radical his own filling-in-the-blanks can be on the road to utmost confidence in God. We learned through Lott how he used his own confidence in God to do without him for a while and like a once lost floating piece of paper, how the spirit floated back into his life, and how by his experiences and faith, he discovered a self- accountability by God's word. It is as though Lott found that he needed a faith within himself first before he could fully devote his faith to God; which may be why the traditions of the Catholic religion was a turn off early on in Lott's life. On the surface a book that airs the Catholic religions dirty laundry may appear self-serving, but after reading GROWING UP CATHOLIC, it proves to be just the opposite; as it is, instead, a compassionate outreach to those who are Catholics or those who grew up Catholic that may not have been able to put their finger on just what was missing from their experience. For that reason, GROWING UP CATHOLIC may have, even, Catholics more so GROWING UPWARD CATHOLIC than had they not read this book. The book GROWING UP CATHOLIC raises many valid questions, and it leaves the reader to do the answering (not Tim Lott). This book greatest strength is that it guides the reader towards self-discovery and onward towards a relationship with the Lord, and 'all that' is a gem worth having as a keepsake in your household or nearby on the church book shelf for when its congregation needs to be reminded where the strength of your faith came from. Its STUDY GUIDE QUESTIONS were pointed and intriguing as and, to a generous extent, brings into application the many valid faith-guiding lamp-posts lined up in this literary inward look at what reads as a gut-wrenching experience any compassionate person can appreciate. Lott's (book) GROWING UP CATHOLIC will achieve its goal, in due time: to simply help Catholics and Former Catholics build a bridge to a relationship with the Lord Christ almighty. No need to wait until something tragic happens in your life to be the one impetuous to strengthen your relationship with the Lord. Do it now! Readers will applaud Lott in tackling a tough subject: Religion versus faith; which is the mistaken foundation of seeking a relationship with the Lord?”

A hilarious memoir of a lapsed catholic who can't quite fully escape I remember thinking when I was about 14, "I hope God doesn't find out I'm an atheist." Here is Rory's story of being brought up a Catholic, going to Catholic school, and being an altar boy; of the parents, priests, and nuns who taught him; and of the life and characters at his local church. Until, that is, as a teenager in crisis, he abandons his faith and enters the godforsaken world and the glamour of its evil ways with a spring in his step. But almost immediately he realizes he has in the process also freed himself from certainty, comfort, and hope. So his apostasy is a long and winding road which includes the coincidence of marrying a (lapsed) Catholic and getting married in a Catholic church so his children could attend the best school in the area. Its about how being raised a Catholic always colors his view of life and death and how it fuels the guilt he feels in every nook and cranny of that life, and how it provoked for him an [unsuccessful] search for God in other things—sex, drugs, drink, love, family, soccer, and the Periodic Table. May contain traces of jokes.

Parish The Thought

In a warm and affectionate narrative that "transports readers back to a time before cable television, cell phones, and the Internet" (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), John Bernard Ruane paints a marvelous portrait of his Irish-Catholic boyhood on the southwest side of Chicago in the 1960s. Capturing all the details that perfectly evoke those bygone days for Catholics and baby boomers everywhere, Ruane recounts his formative years donning the navy-and-plaid school uniform of St. Bede's: the priests and nuns; bullies, best friends, and first loves; and most memorable teachers -- including the miniskirted blonde who inspired lust among the fifth-grade boys but was fired for protesting the Vietnam War. Here are stories from the heart of his hardworking, blue-collar family: the good times and bad; sibling rivalries; summers by the lake; delivering newspapers in the frigid Chicago winter; the fire that destroyed the family home; and the loss of their beloved mother to cancer. And here are priceless accounts of Ruane's days as an altar boy: from an embarrassing bell-ringing mishap, to serving a strict pastor who built a magnificent church but couldn't inspire Christian spirit, to the Heaven-sent guitar-playing priest who turned worship around for a generation of youth.
