About the Edition

It is the story of a man in prison who falls in love, through lengthy correspondence, with a woman he"s never met. Getting out, he goes to find her and discovers that the love letters he"s received were written not by a woman but by a closeted gay man -- a small town minister. Not only did the minister deceive the prisoner, but he sent a photograph of his sister (who lives with him) as a picture representing himself. And not only is the sister unaware of the ruse, but she herself happens to be a lesbian. The ex-prisoner has fallen in love physically with a woman who doesn"t know he exists, and mentally with a man he doesn"t know how to love. Set in the scenic Texas Gulf Coast fishing village of Rockport, it is a darkly humorous and contemplative examination of the parameters of love, sex, sexuality and cultural perspective.

As a priest and bishop, Hirschfeld has quietly and secretly been in treatment for depression for decades but now shares his own experience publicly. In this book, he offers short meditations, prayers, and suggestions of how one can follow and call upon Jesus for strength and . But the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words, The Spirit of God not only maintains this hope within us, but helps us in our present limitations. For example, we do not know how to pray worthily as sons of God, but his Spirit within us is actually praying for us in those agonising longings which never find words.   When Paul says, “for we do not know how to pray as we ought” he goes on to say “but” the very Spirit of God intercedes for us with “sighs too deep for words.” The deep sighs of the Spirit and the deep groans of our own spirits are here directly linked. God’s Spirit groans along with us and even through us. It’s as if Paul is saying — if you don’t know the words to say in prayer, just be quiet .   When there are sighs too deep for words we can take courage that the Spirit intercedes, the Spirit knows our hearts, and helps us say yes to continue pressing forward in our weakness. I commend to you and to myself to keep going.
