I look on my whole life as giving, and I want to give and give until there is nothing left to give.
—Solanus Casey, from the Introduction

Padre Pio and André Bessette would have readily agreed with Solanus Casey even though, on the surface, none of the three had much to give. All grew up in humble circumstances, each suffered poor health, and none achieved academic distinc

A great introduction to Padre Pio, Solanus Casey, and Andre Bessette, this book is also a quick read. Schorn offers mini-biographies of these three saintly men, but nothing heavy. Perfect if you're looking for lighter spiritual reading!

A short, fast-paced, and highly enjoyable introduction to Saint Padre Pio, Venerable Solanus Casey, and Brother Andre. Even if you already know their lives, you will still find this book a treasure.
Very inspiring and highly recommended.
