The ‘sermon’ this week will focus on one of the most noteworthy novels of the 20th century.

In ‘The Plague,’ French writer Albert Camus (Nobel Prize for Literature, 1957)

imagined a modern city afflicted by the terrible scourge of the bubonic plague.

Some critics have read the novel as an allegory for the Nazi occupation of Paris during World War Two.

In this time of pandemic, ‘The Plague’ has become very topical, and there is a resurgence of interest in it.


In the final page, we read this astonishing declaration: ‘that there is more to admire in humanity

than to despise.’  Is that true?
