 General Description:

In his first-ever memoir, Fr. Benedict Goeschel introduces you to the men and women who have influenced him over the course of his life. Some are unknown, such as Mr. Graff, a Jewish man who tailored the suit the young man would wear to the seminary. His advice: "Look, I don't understand about monasteries, but I'll give you a piece of advice. Be a good boy." Some are famous, such as Mother Teresa, Cardinal O'Connor, and Fr. Solanus Casey who once, in Fr. Benedict's presence, stepped unprotected into a swarm of angry bees, pulled out his harmonica, and played "Mother McCree" to calm them.
br> All of them changed his life in big and small ways. Their stories will not only inspire you, but also help you appreciate those you have met over the years who have enriched and deepened your own life and inspire you to make a difference in someone else's life.

This item received 5 stars overall. A total page turner

When I picked up my copy of Fr. Benedict Groeschel's latest book Travelers Along the Way, I was fairly confident that I was getting ready to read a book that was certainly going to be an interesting read if nothing else.  I've read other books by him and have watched him on EWTN many times so I had no doubts that I wanted to read this book.

Travelers Along the Way is Fr. Groeschel's memoir of a men and women who shaped his life.  This book doesn't include everyone who inspired and shaped this remarkable man's life, but the handful of people he selected to write about all have something in their story to teach or inspire the reader.  There were several stories that made me laugh.  To be honest, I didn't expect that I'd be in for a few bouts of side splitting laughter when I cracked open this book.
