Item description for Meet Solanus Casey : Spiritual Counselor and Wonder Worker by Leo Wollenweber & Bernadine Casey...

Overview
By merely human standards, the life of Solanus Casey was no great success story. A mediocre student who couldn't keep up in diocesan seminary, he barely made it through the seminary of the capuchin friars. When he was finally ordained, they made him a "simplex priest" - one who is not allowed to hear confessions or preach doctrinal sermons. So Casey spent fifty-three years in lowly service as a sacristan and doorkeeper. Nevertheless, he graciously accepted this humble station in life, and God rewarded him with a remarkable ministry of spiritual counsel and divine healings. Today he ranks among the most prodigious wonder-workers in Church history. This book tells the startling story of the simple friar whose loving concern for everyday people dramatically transformed thousands of lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meet Solanus Casey : Spiritual Counselor and Wonder Worker?

Satisfied  Aug 28, 2007
I received the book, Meet Solanus Casey, in a very short time after ordering it. The book is in perfect condition. Thank you very much
 
"Even the Smallest Person..."  Mar 8, 2007
Do you ever feel insignificant, or that your little life doesn't make a difference? Well, "Meet Solanus Casey"! His life proved that even the smallest person among us can change the world by just being himself. Born of poor Irish farmers, Solanus (Barney) did so poorly in his studies for the priesthood that he merely attained "simplex" status. In his latter years, 400 people a day would line up to counsel with him - so great was his love and his impact on his fellow man. Be inspired by the love of this little friar and believe that you, too can change the world.
 
A Spiritual Man for Our Times  Nov 27, 2002
I have visited just about every state in the Union, and I am constantly amazed at how many people have heard of Fr. Solanus Casey. A native of Wisconsin, one of 16 children of a devout Irish Catholic family, Fr. Solanus entered the Capuchin Order and spent the rest of his life listening to people's problems and praying for the healing of their bodies and their spirits. His cause for canonization is currently pending in Rome.
Several fine biographies of Fr. Solanus have already been written. "Meet Solanus Casey" is unique in that it is written by one who lived with him in community and was his personal friend, Brother Leo Wollenweber. Brother Leo draws on the rich documentation available about Fr. Solanus, but he also adds so many anecdotes and personal reflections that are not found elsewhere. The result is a warm, intimate portrait of a man who inspired faith in God in so many people. Readers will also appreciate the appendix entitled "Wisdom from Fr. Solanus"--a collection of brief sayings selected from his letters and diaries.
"Meet Solanus Casey" is a gracious introduction to the life of this happy and loving Servant of God.
 
Really meet Fr. Solanus  Nov 15, 2002
This is one of three or four biographies of the Capuchin holy man, but it is far the best for the common reader. It is written by a friar who had a long association with him, and is therefore very personal. You truly feel that you have gotten to know Fr. Solanus as a person, not just as a miracle worker or a phenomenon. The amount of theological discourse is small and never confusing. I am recommending it to all, even to the more sophisticated reader.
