Splendor of Sorrow
Eddie Doherty styles himself the “Blindman,” who realizes he needs help from the saints to see the significance of suffering. And so, he embarks on the journey through time with the saints to see the Seven Sorrows of our Lady as if they were happening today, or perhaps rather as if he had lived through their happening. He traverses in this company the road to Egypt, stands in the Court of the Temple, seeks for the lost Child, follows the thorn crowned Man, and stands by the Cross. Doherty has a rare ability to write of holy things with insight and tenderness, without sacrificing his vivid, realistic style.
