On re-reading The Song, what struck me most about Werfels craft was how deeply this Jewish writer, who had long been interested in Catholicism but who had never converted, had entered into Catholicisms sacramental imagination. For all its unsparing depiction of the poverty of the French Pyrenees, the pettiness of local officialdom, the skepticism and institutional-mindedness of local churchmen, The Song of Bernadette is shot through with a sense of the extraordinary that lies on the far side of the ordinary, revealing itself through the simplest things. George Weigel, from the Foreword
