Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR
of the outcast, acclaimed teacher and spiritual director, insightful
psychologist, and founding member of a thriving religious community,
Father Benedict J. Groeschel was not merely a man of uncommon talents
but one of extraordinary achievements.
at heart he was a simple friar, a humble priest; and his goal in life
was very modest: to follow as best he could the path God had chosen
over eighty years-more than fifty of them as a priest-Father
Groeschel faithfully walked that path; and, in so doing, he gave hope
to abandoned youth, to pregnant women who were homeless and alone, to
many of those people whom society so easily and thoughtlessly
electrifying speaker and a writer of real talent, he was responsible
for rekindling the love for God in the hearts of many whose faith had
turned to ashes. And his legendary devotion to the poor led him to
help found the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, with the mission to
serve those who had little or nothing.
Friar's Taleis an inspiring, moving, and sometimes
humorous biography that invites readers to immerse themselves in the
fascinating details of a remarkable life, one animated by faith and
devoted to love.
