Résumé :

I have read the book twice in my life and find it a fascinating character study of the fallible priest who still feels called to minister the Eucharist to the poor who need him. The setting in Mexico is powerful as the priest ministers illegally in the season of Mexico's history where he could be arrested and killed at any time. Greene's character study is methodical and intense, not a light read. Still the "power and the glory" of the book is obvious in self-sacrifice of a man who seems unsure of redemption for himself, yet still offers it humbly through the Eucharist to the people.
