Glowing review from St. Petersburg, Florida

Monday, November 15th, 2010

“At a time when I should be spending my time reading documentation in advance of next week’s annual meeting of the bishops of the United States, I found myself totally engrossed in a book, which I highly recommend to anyone. Titled My Cousin the Saint (Harper Collins, 2008), this masterful account was written by Justin Catanoso…”

So begins the Nov. 14, 2010 blog entry by Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Fla. My book was brought to the bishop’s attention by an old friend from my boyhood days in Wildwood, NJ who now lives in St. Pete. The rest of the kind and gracious review is here.

“Just let me say that I have seldom been as captivated by a personal story as I was by this one, finding it hard to put my iPad on ‘off,’” Bishop Lynch writes.

Family reunion

Catanoso family reunion
The 51st Catanoso Family Reunion will be held tomorrow at the Avalon Campground in Clermont, NJ. These events started as small affairs with nine siblings and their children in the backyard of Uncle Tony and Aunt Phyllis’ home in North Wildwood, NJ. The events have grown in size over the years as the 22 grandchildren of Carmelo and Caterina Catanoso began families of their own. Four generations are now represented. The photo here, which is included in my book, was taken in 2003.
