New Book On the Missionary Bishop of Texas and Second Archbishop of New Orleans - Jean Marie Odin

This looks like a good book on Archbishop Odin. Archbishop Odin was the second Archbishop of New Orleans as well as was the first Bishop of the Diocese of Galveston ( all of Texas  .

The book Missionary Bishop: Jean-Marie Odin in Galveston and New Orleans publised by Texas A & M Press  is written by noted historian Patrick Foley. Much of the book is focused on the incredible effort of Bishop Odin and his group of priests, nuns , and brothers to basically have to rebuild the Catholic Church in Texas.

The North Texas Catholic has a very nice review of the book here. I plan to try to get a copy.

A book of some interest as perhaps the American Catholic Church undergoes another change .
