We think times are tough today? How'd you like to have a pope and his mistress as your great-grandparents, another notorious Borgia as your grandfather, and a grandmother who fled to a Franciscan monastery? Margaret Yeo does a fantastic job describing the times and the spirituality of this Borgia who served in the court of the Holy Roman Emperor, married a holy wife, raised children, lived up to his nobility...and then corresponded with the founder of the Jesuits for advice as to how best to serve God....Well worth reading.
