by Father Joseph Lorenzo, OFM

While pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Derry, New Hampshire, Father Joseph Lorenzo penned a weekly column for the church bulletin called "The View From My Window. These funny, touching, and inspiring essays were a cornerstone to his ministry, meant to guide his flock of nearly 10,000 toward a deeper understanding of the role of the Church and as a rededication to building up the Kingdom of God on Earth. Through heartwarming and often humorous homilies and recollections, Father Joe regales us with tales of growing up in an Italian Family, his experience of life in a Franciscan friary, his travels to the Holy Land, and his desire to rebuild a Catholic parish much in need of spiritual and physical repair.
Father Joseph "Joe" Lorenzo, a Franciscan priest, is a native of Brooklyn, New York. He has served as pastor in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Derry, New Hampshire. He is currently pastor of the Shrine Church of Saint Anthony of Padua in the SoHo section of Manhattan, New York City.
Father Joseph Lorenzo's, "View From My Window," is a wonderful collection of thoughts and personal recognitions. From his humor, to the serious moments, to his journey that led him to where he is now, I thoroughly enjoyed every single word. He shares deeply personal thoughts about his thousands of parishioners, his family, friends, and most importantly, his God. I was fascinated by the fact that before I read this, I didn't have a clue who this man was, or that he even existed; however, after reading his insightful, loving, warm, humorous, heartfelt "view," I truly believe I would know him anywhere. Not being Catholic, I thought for sure I would be bored reading this book, but I have never been more mistaken about anything. He has given me new insight into a religion that I never understood.

You definitely got the impression that Fr. Lorenzo loved his parishioners, his Church, and his Franciscan brothers. He tells a good story all while getting his spiritual message across. Highly recommend this read to all!
The author, Fr. Joseph Lorenzo, shares his experiences and insights on being a pastor in a large Catholic parish, a Franciscan Friar and Priest. I loved his great ability to tell his church's story, often in a funny way with anecdotes about his Italian family, his parishioners, and his own faith. I found the messages in his reproduced weekly messages to his parishioners very refreshing and often moving without being preachy and not the least condescending. He knows how to keep your interest and is very down to earth in the running of the business aspects as well as the spiritual aspects of his parish in New Hampshire. You follow the progression of his church, his parishioners, and community over a period years under his leadership and it makes you wish you were part of a congregation such as what he describes, no matter what church/faith you belong to. I highly recommend this book!!
