“The Noonday Devil, Acedia, the Unnamed Evil of Our Times” is a new book discussed by Anthony (Tony) Ryan. The book is written by Jean-Charles Nault, Abbot of Saint Wandrille of France, with a forward by Marc Cardinal Ouellet. Five principle manifestations of acedia are: interior instability, exaggerated concern for one’s health, aversion to manual work, neglect in observing the rule, and general discouragement. Promoter of the Cause for Pope Pius XII, Sister Margherita Marchione from New Jersey is a Doctor of Philosophy, writer, history teacher, and apologist who dedicated herself to the defense of the Pope.
