This little gem of a book reminds us how to rise above and grow in difficult times, with the pure, always-available power of mercy. With a great deal of honesty and humor Lamott describes her dysfunctional history, her struggles with addiction and sobriety, all the while showing us that we are not alone, that we’d all sometimes much rather punch someone in the face than turn the other cheek. Reading Lamott’s book feels like sitting down with a warm friend who wants to remind you that through it all, it really will be okay, that you are not alone, and that it is possible to avail yourself of mercy, even on the most difficult days. She dares us repeatedly, by using anecdotes both funny and poignant, to try every day to be open to mercy.
This book discussion will be limited to fifteen persons. For the first session of our book discussion group, participants should have read the first two chapters of Hallelujah Anyway, pages three to forty-two.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
