He Leadeth Me

Am currently reading the memoir of this title by the American Jesuit priest Fr Walter Ciszek (1904-84), about Fr Ciszek's imprisonment by Soviet authorities between 1941 and 1963. I'm on page 41 in the Ignatius Press edition.

I've owned a copy of He Leadeth Me for close to a year, but have balked at reading it, fearing its "heavy" or "depressing" subject matter. But I should like to thank a high-school classmate of mine, Sr M-----, a Daughter of St Paul, for encouraging me to read the book, for saying (in effect) "be not afraid!"
