German Princess Thurn und Taxis presents book about her faith

Princess Elisabeth Von Thurn und TaxisAuthor, “La fede dei piccoli” “I really like him, he?s an incredibly pious man with a real humility and simplicity in the best use of the words. ; I thought that he really represented what I love about the faith, which is not the intellectual, big theological questions, but really the quite simple and sensual and physical aspect of faith.”

The princess says she wrote the book as a way to reach out to a group of readers who may be searching for a source of inspiration. She draws on her faith to help her at all times because she says being a Catholic means to make God part of her daily life. ;

Princess Elisabeth Von Thurn und TaxisAuthor, “La fede dei piccoli” “If I touch on people?s lives, if people love, if people feel something, if they can identify I feel that sort of the zenith of what I could achieve.”

Princess Elizabeth is a feature?s editor for Finch?s Quaterly Review, a journal which she blogs for in her weekly series “The Princess Diaries.”She taps into her own upbringing in the Church for inspiration to write her first book. ; She regales the reader on a journey of faith and stories of growing up in a royal family. ;

Princess Elisabeth Von Thurn und TaxisAuthor, “La fede dei piccoli” “The editor said do whatever you want with it. ; I just started thinking about my Catholic roots and what Catholicism meant, or what I was drawn to as a child and what I still find myself doing.”

The book is available in German and Italian but she has hopes that the book will soon become available in other languages as well.
