This is the first Greene I have read in years and it is a powerful novel It is set in Mexico and Greene has spent some time there in research The novel is about a priest a whisky priest in a province of Mexico where the Catholic Church is banned and priests are shot The unnamed protagonist is a bad priest and a drunkard who has also fathered a child He is also a coward The title is taken from the end of The Lord s Prayer and there is religious imagery all over the place The priest rides a donkey to his inevitable capture having been given a chance to escape the peasant who betrays him is Judas Most of the other characters can be seen to represent someone in the gospel narratives Maria padre Jose Tench etc The priest is a very imperfect Christ and the Lieutenant a very implacable reperesentative of authority who is ultimately moved by the priest The Lieutenant plays a much larger role than Pilate does in the gospels but there is a What is truth Moment The book represents Greene s own struggles with faith and the Church There are also themes relating to abandonment desolation hope and the bleakness of everyday life for the poor Greene s descriptive powers are very powerful and you can feel the stifling heat This is a thought provoking piece and managed to offend Catholics and atheists in eual measure uite a neat trick I ve known a few whisky priests in my time and remember one particular church and rectory which was locally christened St Glenfiddich s because of the drinking habits of the incumbent He didn t seem to do a great deal apart from drink but when the alcohol finally got him everyone turned out for the funeral and he was rather fondly remembered The whisky priest here doesn t do a great deal apart from move around and perform any religious duties he was forced to by the locals There is something here perhaps about being rather than doingWhile I don t share Greene s faith it is an interesting and powerful novel with hidden layers than I first perhaps realised

Classic Parable 1930s Mexico Paramount Importance Today A tragic situation exists precisely when virtue does not triumph but when it is still felt that man is nobler than the forces which destroy him George Orwell Shooting an Elephant 1950Greene was driven to write this sympathetic novel about persecution of Mexican priests after visiting the Mexican province of Tabasco in 1938 at the height of the Mexican anti clerical purge of Marxist revolutionaries Upon returning home Greene called it the fiercest persecution of religion anywhere since the reign of Elizabeth Note obviously this was before the Nazis slaughter of millions of Jews during WW IIThe Power and the Glory is Greene s nearly flawless parable of dualities in society and within us good vs evil spirituality vs materialism love vs hate and the freedom of the individual versus the intrusive and paternalistic stateGreene based the novel on the life of a real life whiskey priest who existed for ten years in the forest and swamps venturing out only at night It is structured as a game of cat and mouse between the priest and an unnamed Communist police lieutenant as part of an attempt to eradicate the country of CatholicismThe lieutenant despises the church and is obsessed with capturing the priest to execute him for the greater good of the state The communists attempts backfired turning the priest into a martyr in the eyes of the people To me the novel s focus on hope and redemption and the lessons of Greene s realistic parable make it a classic The whiskey priest is a significantly flawed man a bad alcoholic who has been scandalized by fathering a child in a night of weakness with a peasant woman He is acutely aware of his defects and failures as both a man and a priest Although a man of the cloth with faith in a hereafter he is terrified of pain and of death and thus acknowledges his doubt His knowledge of self elevates him to the level of heroic in the novel as he is redeemed by his conviction that he is responsible for his sins and the suffering he has brought on others especially on his illegitimate daughter He especially feels a sharp pain when seeing her she s around 10 because she seems to have lost her innocence way too soon and thus he sees her as having scant hope for pleasure and happiness in the world His love for her and sense of responsibility for her plight her ruined purity crush the man The world was in her heart already like the small spot of decay in a fruit So through the sin of her conception and the love he has for her he finds salvation even in his darkest hour as the chase by the lieutenant and police force gets tighter and closerThough dark and tense this novel is so hopeful in Greene s vision and truth that even a most flawed man can achieve redemption if he can humbly accept his fallibility and responsibility for his sins and the harm he has caused others Indeed such a man can gain back respect and even be admired to the point of being heroic In today s world where our leaders spew spastic shit daily in 140 characters under a tweety bird full of noxious narcissism always passing the buck and refusing to admit even the possibility of their human fallibility or a sense of responsibility when things go wrong this parable seems a particularly important read for young adults and a must read reminder to the rest of us of our greater selves
