TATTOOS ON THE HEART The Power of Boundless Compassion

by | Read by Gregory Boyle

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Twenty years working at the Dolores Mission in the ganglands of Los Angeles have made Jesuit priest Gregory Boyle a keen observer and philosopher. His collection of parables and observations of the members of the community he serves creates a memorable audiobook. Boyle is not a polished narrator, but his evident compassion and commitment will win over listeners. He becomes more comfortable with the audio medium as the program goes along, and a most relaxed storyteller's style evolves. Boyle's stories of the creation of Homeboy Bakery and Homeboy Industries are by turns heartrending and hopeful. The many triumphs small and large of the gang members and the community and, of course, the tragedies make you want to tattoo Boyle's message on your heart.
