Follow the footsteps of Charles de Foucauld.

From spoiled child to hero of God, the life of Charles de Foucauld is a model of how Christ's love can transform a person's soul. A rebellious child, Charles de Foucauld became a wild, pleasure-loving soldier in the French Army. But at 28, he experienced a spiritual transformation, rediscovering the Catholic faith of his childhood and accepting an “apostolate of goodness.” Charles left the life of a soldier for missionary work and believed that to love is the most powerful way to be loved.

Serve the poor.

A hermit who preferred the silence of solitude, Charles became a respected missionary in the remote Sahara concerned deeply about universal salvation. Believing that Christ did not come to earth primarily to teach but to share the human lot, Charles lived among those who were “furthest from God” and most rejected by men, sharing their lives and their hardships. In 1916, during an anti-French uprising, Charles was assassinated. Now Charles de Foucauld is remembered as not only a martyr for the France he loved but also for the God he adored.

Enjoy your time with Charles de Foucauld and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of our time.
