Overview

The dramatic life story of a pioneering Holy Cross missionary who overcame tremendous obstacles to preach the gospel in East Africa. In this definitive biography of "servant of God" Vincent McCauley, C.S.C., Richard Gribble, C.S.C., shows how his life was one of extremes. McCauley grew up in the quiet, peaceful, American town of Council Bluffs, Iowa, in the early twentieth century. Although he nearly lost his beloved calling to be a missionary to cancer, he went on as a bishop to survive the rampant violence of 1970s Uganda. This compelling biography demonstrates how, through these changing extremes, McCauley maintained an immovable faith and uncompromising vision, hewn within the long-standing missionary spirit of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
