Such Is My Beloved characters Ñ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ê Morley Callaghan Pires to redeem their lives The novel is at once a compassionate portrait of innocence and idealism and an emphatic condemnation of a society. This is the second novel I ve read by Morley Callaghan and I enjoyed it much than A Passion in Rome Father Stephen Dowling is a young and somewhat na ve priest who encounters two young prostitutes one evening His original impulse is to pass them by but then ashamed and feeling some responsibility for these residents of his parish he turns back determined to help them Unable to find them respectable jobs because of the Depression he gives Ronnie and Midge money and buys them food and clothing He becomes increasingly involved with them visiting them freuently in their hotel room or looking for them on the streets When Father Dowling appeals to Mr Robison a wealthy and charitable parishioner for help Mrs Robison finds out and due to her strong disapproval Mr Robison informs the Bishop of this potentially scandalous although innocent relationship The girls are arrested and sent away Father Dowling exemplifies Christian love the Robisons and the Bishop are hypocrites who place Christian beliefs second to worldly considerations Father Dowling s close friend Charles Stewart an atheist and communist sees prostitution simply as a social and economic problem Only Father Dowling sees these girls as individuals worthy of love Ultimately Father Dowling loses his sanity but in a moment of clarity he offers it as a sacrifice for the souls of Ronnie and Midge
