Breakfast with the Pope

“… hits all the right notes.  It is funny, sad, inspiring and introspective. It beautifully accomplishes what it sets out to do…  “- Judges, Writers’ Digest 22nd Annual Self-Published Book Awards.

A Christian “Ea,t Pray, Love.” Susan Vigilante, an average Catholic wife from Long Island, woke up one morning in the romantic Italian hillside near the ancient village of Castel Gandolfo and had breakfast with Pope John Paul II. How did she get here? Breakfast with the Pope is the funny, endearing, searing, and relentlessly honest story of a woman on a pilgrimage, a woman who has failed for years to become the writer she longs to be, who yearns for the children she is unable to bear, who seeks to find the promised God of love amidst the wreckage of failed human relationships. This is a book you will never forget, an often funny, always deeply moving spiritual memoir about seeking faith in the midst of doubt, compassion in the midst of suffering, and above all choosing love even knowing that it never comes without pain.

Read this book. A Christian Eat Pray Love, it will change forever how you think about faith. Like life itself it alternates between being funny-as-hell and emotionally wrenching, an inner glimpse of the experience of barrenness: spiritual, physical, and professional, which is overcome by one woman's stubborn and relentlessly honest search for faith. Vigilante's appreciation of the beauties of Italy and her deeply personal portrait of John Paul II are a great gift to those who love either. More info →
