CERC - Party Girl - Colleen Carroll Campbell - chapter 1 from My Sisters the Saints: A Spiritual Memoir

A poignant and powerful spiritual memoir about how the lives of the saints changed the life of a modern woman. His Grace Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia, introduces Colleen Carroll Campbell's new book this way:
Colleen Carroll Campbell is one of the finest writers on the American Catholic scene, and My Sisters the Saints: A Spiritual Memoir shows her heart, her skill, and her keen intelligence at their best. This is a wonderful, engaging personal memoir and a great witness of faith.
Joseph Bottum, former editor of First Things, frequently has something a little different to contribute. He has this to say about Colleen's new book:
The saints undo the world — for by their sheer existence, they tell us we may have gotten it wrong: all our conventions, all our agreements, all our correctnesses and easy thoughts are no help when things come crashing in. In troubled times, Colleen Carroll Campbell found herself by reading the lives of the great women saints. And you might find your own self, reading Campbell's My Sisters the Saints.
