As a Catholic priest, his courage and warmth led many to seek his guidance. His heart can still speak to hearts today.

Testimonials for Brave Leader, Big Heart

This is a most unusual book. Fr. Juan Vélez presents the examined life, the life of the mind, as an adventure — full of thrills and daring and good humor. And that’s what it is! Unfortunately, books for young people rarely convey this excitement. Brave Leader, Big Heart does it. Every Catholic young person should read this, but especially boys.
