    Very Inspiring

    Once again, Abbe Francois Trochu writes an inspiring biography in the same vein as his first classic, St. Bernadette Soubirous 1844-1879. Trochu provides an outstanding historical accounting of the Saint, Cure de Ars. Unforunately, Trochu must rely on second hand accounts, histories and canonical proceedings for the Cure's canonization in order to write his story. The book is extrememly detailed untilizing very careful reference to numerous sources. In some ways, the Cure comes across as an individual who is crazed, a religious nut who is overly influenced by Jansenism. As the reader patiently reads on an extremely beatiful and inspiring story unfolds in the words of those who knew him most; the local people and pilgrims. The Cure is a man and saint for all times. He knew the value of prayer, penance and the control of the senses. His story is an inspiration for those seeking a deeper understanding of the love and mercy of God. Once again, Trochu provides a 'window to the past' which shows the glorious traditions of the Catholic Church. The story is timeless.
