Overview

American Apostle of the Family Rosary: The Life of Patrick J. Peyton, CSC by Richard Gribble

This Catholic Press Association First-Place winner covers the life of one of the most influential figures of 20th century Catholic piety. In a career that spanned half a century, Father Patrick J. Peyton, CSC, criss-crossed the world proclaiming a simple but profound message, "The Family that Prays Together Stays Together." An Irish immigrant to the United States, Fr. Peyton experienced a miraculous recovery from tuberculoses by, what he believed to be, the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Following this faithful encounter, Fr. Peyton initiated an international program to promote family prayer through the rosary. Through radio, "Family Theater of the Air," television films, and most prominently, a series of international rosary crusades, Fr. Peyton converted millions to his simple message that continues to inspire today. This major volume covers his life in rich detail, including a photo insert.
