Food for the Soul is a work of theology that sheds light on the history of Catholicism while discussing important issues facing the Church and our society today. Through a series of biographical plays, author Alex LaPerchia tells the stories of a variety of influential Catholic figures: the twentieth century popes who served as “beacons of light” during the Holocaust; Venerable Louis of Granada, a renowned Dominican monk considered a “theologian for the laity”; Blessed Margaret of Castello, who overcame disability and adversity to devote her life to serving others; and Saint John Vianney, recognized by the Catholic Church as the patron saint of all parish priests. LaPerchia also explores his personal history as a Catholic and shares how God reveals Himself though all faiths.
