Monsignor O'Neill is quite a storyteller. Through the years he has been encouraged to collect his tall tales into a book. This collection of stories spans 70 years from his childhood in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s Ireland to his more-than-50-year ministry in the United States. Some of the stories in this collection may seem to be outlandish or hard to believe. They are actually all true! O'Neill says, "Life is a journey. Scenes from that journey may make a deep impression and remain in the memory. We must never forget our roots. No matter who or what we are, we are dependent upon the goodness and the friendship of each other. We are ultimately dependent upon God and His goodness toward us. Each generation is unique and is a product of its own time and culture. We have received noble values and virtues from past generations. They have given us the warm and happy memories we treasure so much. May future generations have happy childhood memories to share with their children."
