The Little World of Fr. Raby, 1980-2007
by Msgr. Thomas Raby
For almost 50 years, Msgr. Tom Raby delighted readers of The Catholic Register with his folksy observations of life and people in his weekly column “The Little World of Father Raby.”
Following two popular books in the 1970s that showcased his early work, The Little World of Father Raby:1980-2007 is the long-overdue final instalment of the charming tales of parish life that brought Raby legions of fans. It is a book comprising 81 of Raby's best columns, a collection of anecdotes, reflections, lessons, humour, kindness, wisdom, faith and prayer from a humble man who dedicated his life to serving God and his parishioners.
Raby, 91 stopped writing in 2007 after suffering a series of strokes, nine years after he had retired as a pastor. A native of Gananoque, Ont., he graduated from St. Augustine’s Seminary in Toronto, was ordained at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kingston in 1945 and studied journalism at Marquette University from 1949-50 before coming home to his twin callings of words and faith.
