Armiger Jagoe author of
Light Reading for Good & Wayward Catholics

Thursday, June 11
In Light Reading for Good and Wayward Catholics, Jagoe has stomped in where angels fear to tread, and his book has both caused smiles and raised eyebrows across the country. Praised by three bishops, it has been snubbed by others. One reviewer wrote “Hats off to Mr. Jagoe who has done a magnificent job of honing in on those issues and topics that keep many wayward Catholics at arm’s length from the Church. This book is a quick, easy read that screams out to be sheared with others.”

One critic wrote, “Humor has no place in religion, and if I were the Pope, I’d excommunicate Jagoe.”

Rev. Joseph Marini, in Oakland, Ca, said, “I predict this book will make a valuable contribution to the Church of the future. It should be read by every Catholic.”

Armiger Jagoe is a Maryland writer and a Catholic convert. His history includes having flown bombing missions in WWII; an insurance career in Washington, DC; founding Bonabond, an organization for aiding ex-convicts; serving as president of the Salvation Army; and he is the author of five books.
