By merely human standards, the life of Solanus Casey was no great success story. A mediocre student who couldn't keep up in diocesan seminary, he barely made it through the seminary of the Capuchin friars. When he was finally ordained, they made him a "simplex priest"-one who is not allowed to hear confessions or preach doctrinal sermons. So Casey spent fifty-three years in lowly service as a sacristan and doorkeeper. Nevertheless, he graciously accepted this humble station in life, and God rewarded him with a remarkable ministry of spiritual counsel and divine healings. This book tells the startling story of the simple friar whose loving concern for everyday people dramatically transformed thousands of lives. A Servant Book.
