This is a "must-listen" audio book that should never stay on the shelf of the library, due to it's importance in our society. Catholic Priest Boyle found God in the poor and was assigned to the ghetto war-zone of Los Angeles, where he both finds jobs for the young people and presides over their burials, visiting them in prison, at home, and everywhere in between. Extremely well spoken he opens a passage with a line from the bible or other spiritual text, and then tells funny stories to support how he finds God in the most unlikely situations. Feet on the ground and head in the cloud, he's a model to all of us on an alternative way of living from the greed and consumption we take for granted.
