Once again, Mike Aquilina delves into the life and world of a legendary saint too often surrounded by more “legend” and less certainty. While traversing history in an imaginative and engaging way, Aquilina’s keen interest in both historical fact and storytelling combine artfully into a powerful reminder why St. Patrick came to be one of the most beloved and well-known saints of the Catholic Church.
"May this book awaken in our hearts the redemptive longings of the Heart of Christ and the heart of St. Patrick.Thank you, Mike, for communicating to us his life and his spirit." -Fr. Colum Power, SHM
