HUMANITIES’ SEARCH FOR RELEVANCY AND FULFILLMENT

AN IRISH LULLABY DEPICTS HUMANITIES’ SEARCH FOR RELEVANCY AND FULFILLMENT, SET AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF ONE OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL, MORAL, AND BURNING SOCIAL/CULTURAL ISSUES OF OUR TIME, ABORTION.
As Father O’Connor, an aging priest at Saint Aloysius Parish, contemplates his legacy, Angela Sanchez, a troubled teen, sits in an abortion clinic awaiting her procedure. She is comforted by Aubrey Fitzgibbons, who is married to the church deacon but also serves as a leader in the local Planned Parenthood. Aubrey is conflicted between her obligations to the church and her responsibilities to Planned Parenthood. More complications arise when Aubrey becomes pregnant herself, triggering a serious medical condition that threatens her life. Doctors recommend abortion, but something incredible is about to happen.
"In the halcyon days of Hudson County, the Catholic Church's priests and nuns shaped an ethic of respect for both church and society. Louis Manzo's "An Irish Lullaby" captures that spirit and the ways in which benign authoritarian voices insured a civil society where people learned to get along with each other. Those were the days."— Fr. Alexander M. Santora, Faith Matters columnist for THE JERSEY JOURNAL and pastor of Our Lady of Grace & St. Joseph, Hoboken
"In my hometown, a priest in the twilight of his priesthood inadvertently intertwines past morays with the present culture, revealing personal decisions best left in the past."—Pat O'Melia, Host of the Jersey City Show and Television Producer

As Chief of the Jersey City Department of Health, Louis Manzo exposed corporate greed—an unscrupulous company trying to cover up chromium contamination affecting children and city neighborhoods. His efforts led to health studies for the residents and culminated in the country's largest chromium contamination remediation project.

As a New Jersey Assemblyman, Louis Manzo sat on a special legislative committee that sponsored legislation producing the largest property tax rebate in New Jersey's history. He also cosponsored some of the toughest anti-gang and gun violence laws in recent history. In a Resolution of tribute passed by the entire New Jersey General Assembly, Manzo's colleagues proclaimed, "Louis Manzo is an individual of remarkable character and exceptional determination."

Manzo now resides in Belmar, New Jersey, where he is dedicated to writing. He previously authored God's Earth Also Cries, a novel based on the chromium contamination crisis of the 1980s, and Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie, a semi biography of the New Jersey Governor and Manzo's experience with him.
