Grace of story Faith
The Soft spoken Fr Varghese is a sensitive writer. He is also a professional journalist. So in this collection of essays he has served interesting readers his religious and moral Values in his simple journalistic style.
The Source of these essays is his strong faith in Jesus Christ reigning on the altar of his heart. This is clearly shown by his quotations from eminent religious reformers like Raja Ram Mohan Roy and Novel Prize winner Scientist C V Raman. In this light ‘A Life inspired by Jesus’ would be a better title for the book than the actual title Pilgrimage of Love.
All the same, the author has said in his Preface: “The genuine Values and the vision of life presented in this collection of essay concern the readers without any destination of creed or caste.” This may be too much expectation as it may be difficult to digest for people of other faiths. All the same it can be said that the every chapter reveals the writer’s commitment to uphold the true social and religious values and promote them.
From the Preface of Fr. (Dr.) Vinayak Jadav, SJ
