Sfida al sacro in due tempi by Lidia Cerioli Mazzoni

By Lidia Cerioli Mazzoni

L’autrice in questo romanzo affronta un argomento molto delicato, ma lo fa con garbo, disincanto e arguzia. Senza essere polemica, racconta in uno stile solo all’apparenza leggero e scanzonato due storie d’amore parallele che un Prete e una Donna, protagonisti volutamente anonimi, vivono in epoche assorted. Attraverso varie vicissitudini, talora drammatiche, sia in step with l. a. vita stessa dei personaggi sia in line with i problemi di fede e di coscienza con cui si sentono confrontati, il loro amore sfocia in due finali differenti e significativi. Ambedue le conclusioni tuttavia vogliono evidenziare come oggi sia ancora possibile credere, avere fede in un Dio d’amore e di misericordia, nonostante una Chiesa non sempre infallibile in quanto, come ogni umana istituzione, ha nell’uomo i suoi limiti.
