Then in a beautiful cloud of Holy, I go out the door to meet with my people, to see if I really am. With the angelus and two and six in my pocket, I am a rich and holy possible Jesus. I stop and talk to everyone I meet: 'Hello, I might be Jesus.'
Meet Pakie. An orphan, a storyteller, an adventurer, a survivor. He may not be the sharpest sandwich in the tool box, but Pakie knows a thing or two about the history of his native town from the vicious Vikings, to the less-than Christian Brothers. Pakie's a laugh a minute . . . but he's got secrets. Secrets the God-fearing people of Oggle may not be ready to hear.
Written by renowned Irish actor Peter Gowen, The Chronicles of Oggle is a hilarious and heartbreaking story of small towns and even smaller minds.
