Reviews - What do customers think about Virginia Cyr, God's Little Hobo?
God's Little Hobo touches the soul Apr 15, 2004
She had every reason to be bitter towards life and angry at God. Yet, Virginia Cyr never was. She embraced the Lord through hundreds of letters to her "mother" -- Blessed Mother Mary, while plaqued with unbearable pain and confined to a wheelchair. As much as she wanted to be a nun, it wasn't meant to be. Instead, she took the vows privately, vowing to serve those who invite her into their homes. I was among the fortunate ones to have known Virginia. Even though I was just a child, she touched me deeply with her laughter and infectious smile. I adored being around her, and to this day, I marvel how as a 5-year-old she would giggle and wiggle out of her wheechair to obliged to my requests for wheelchair rides. I truly believe she is continuing her mission to serve those who invite her into their lives. Whether you knew Virginia or not, once reading God's Little Hobo, you're bound to come away admiring Virginia's incredible faith and marvel over the depth and beauty of her writings. Her words are her voice. This is a book one can read over and over again and you'll find another passage that touches the heart. It's a book that can change your life. Many of Virginia's friends now believe they were in the presence of a saint, and after reading this book, I feel the same. Maybe you will, too.
The Little Flower of the United States Mar 30, 2004
This is one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. Virginia Cyr was born with CP and lived a life where she was met with rejection at almost every turn but was not defeated by it! She became a living witness to the joy that the Faith can bring to a soul no matter what happens to a person and no matter what circumstances one finds themselves in.
Your life will be changed after your encounter with Virgina!
