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.
A total page turner
