Fifteen years ago, Harry Potter first hit the bookshelves in London. A year later, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" first arrived on the shores of America. In this audio essay, Celeste chronicles the fascinating story of an author who rose from nothing, and the magical story that has captured the imagination of children all over the world.

Since 'Harry Potter' has come to an end, I invite readers to read real-life stories set in the same setting, but not upside-down: the seminaries of the Catholic Church and the paths of men who enter them. A priest's life is indeed an exciting life (as Harry Potter, the upside-down priest shows). It's a real combat of evil, but with real and effective means.

(As Nietzsche writes, the Catholic priest is the happiest person on earth. - see Karl Jasper 'Nietzsche and Christianity'.)
