Review ¶ Dodging Satan Ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free â In this humorous coming of age story Bridget Flagherty a student at St Michael’s Catholic school outside Boston in the 60s and 70s takes refuge in her wacky misunderstandings of Bible Stories and Catholic beliefs to avoid the problems ofG with how God and men treat women Her Italian female relatives glamorous Santa Anna black and blue Aunt Maria sophisticated Eleanor with a New York ‘Fellini pageboy’ offer sensual alternatives to the repression of her immediate family She prays fervently that “despite God’s bizarre treatment of married women some girls might still discover ways to have a great time without being a nun” Dodging Satan is the flip side of l'Histoire d'une Âme by Saint Thérèse of Lisieux authored by a twentieth century American girl chomping on a blue gum cigar while she talks to a confidant about God and se. Hilarious and sad but a great book to read There is someone hilarious and sad wrapped up in the one story of Dodging Satan There is the hilarity of Bridget's innocent perspective of her faith in the points of view of her Irish and Italian family How she believes God is glowing his spirit through her crucifix as well as her father's slippers Or her indulgence prayer math she does to stay out of trouble during sermons There is also her fear of Satan and her night terrors and her parents' daily arguments that are loud enough for the neighborhood to hear It's her coming of age about her heritage her friends and her faith and how they all come together to make her uniue I love how she describes her way of thinking about Catholicism women's lib and growing up in the 60s and 70s There are some heartbreaking moments shared but there are also touching moments that have shaped her just as much I chuckled in every chapter about something crazy whether it was something a family member did or the words she used to describe it Relicky goodness is definitely not a phrase you hear every day

Cause explosions An avid Bible reader who innocently believes everything the nuns tell her Bridget’s saints martyrs and boney Christs become alive and audible within her While the nuns chide her sinful ‘mathematical pride’ and slow eating habits God answers her prayers instantly by day but the devil visits nightly in the dark Scenes run the gamut from laugh out loud Catholic brainwashing of children to heart wrenching abuse to riveting teenage excursions toward sex Young Bridget tries to make sense of a world of raging men and domestically subjugated women and carve a future for herself wrestlin. Laugh out loud and challenging the Irish Catholic system in both a theological and an entirely comedic way This mash up of style works particularly well and I found it's tone to be refreshing It's told from a child's perspective Bridget who is finding ways to deal with her strict upbringing Echoing the socio politics of the time the subject of Catholicism and religion in the 60's and 70's McCormick brings a gritty realism to her story as she does a great job at animating recollections of a child growing up with her mad cap household Although to be expected some of the topics covered were serious and rather sad it is the writers light hearted and uirky manner which kept me enthralled throughout
