Great Tale of a Modern Day American Saint to Be! Jun 3, 2007
Father Crosby's biographical account is the official story of Solanus (Barney) Casey for his cause for beatification and canonization.
A 20th century son of Irish immigrants, Casey becomes a Capuchin Franciscan and ends life as a famous Detroit holy man in the 1950s.
The biography is very thorough, and takes the reader through Casey's life from birth to death, highlighting his tribulations, defeats, and obvious miracles.
This is a great account of how the meek person, the man of only avergage intelligence, without athletic greatness or riches makes an amazing difference in the lives of so many people. Here is a book for the Christian reader who is in search of an example of total humility, charity and kindness, even in he face of belittlement from his own church and community.
It is a long read, being an official account, if you want all the great stories without the comprehensive account, check out 'Gods Dorkeepers".
