We know Peregrine was a zealot, but he was
first and foremost, a servant of God. Jesus
said, "Feed My lambs," and that, Peregrine
did with the last ounce of his strength.
The same qualities, he had shown as a brash
young man, fighting against the Church, he
now used fighting for that Church's people.
Saint Peregrine ministered tirelessly to
the sick. A plague had broken out in Italy
and had spread to Forli. No one was safe,
or excused, from the spreading ravages of
the disease. Peregrine would not even take
time out to be sick. Now, a very tired and
sick sixty years old, he could barely
stand. A cancerous growth, on his right
leg, had spread dangerously, and there was
no way out. He had to be operated on!
He had worked among the
sick, ignoring his own pain and the
seriousness of his illness, for years. Now,
it seemed, the Lord was saying, through the
doctors, there was nothing that could be
done; the leg had to be amputated! Or was
that the Lord talking?
All his life, his greatest
struggle had been obedience. That was the
room of his heart, he would have to hand
over to Jesus, again and again. No sooner
did he allow the Lord into that part of his
will, he would, at the next crisis, shut him
out again. He always judged himself the
reluctant giver. But the Lord really does
not care how you do it; He loves reluctant
and willing, the same.
The Lord was waiting for his
total surrender! Saint Peregrine turned the
entire matter over to Jesus. But, it
wouldn't hurt to pray! If, the next day,
when he awakened from the operation, he was
to be in the Presence of Jesus and Mary, in
his Heavenly home, what better way to
prepare for the journey? They would not
reject him, as even those he'd helped had.
The sight of his sore, and the stench
emanating from it, repulsed them. Did
surrender all those hurts over to the Lord
and His Mother?

most powerful women in the Church of yesterday and today, and shared them in

simple and engaging style, which has placed them among the most popular
Catholic writers of the day.
Each of these 10 women are Role Models for the faithful of today. Read
how they suffered rejection by their peers, discrimination because of sex,
and how they rose above all of it to become movers and shakers of the world.

and an unbending commitment to their vows, most especially that of

Down through the ages, men and
women have given their lives to carry out the command of Jesus. Bob
and Penny Lord have tracked the lives of 12 men who have said, Yes!
to Jesus, and dedicated their lives to that Yes!, some at the cost of
their lives. Their biographies parallel the times of crisis in our
Church. Bob and Penny have set their sights on the man and the time in
which he lived. They have started at the beginning of our infant
Church, with one of the greatest adventurers our Faith has ever known, Paul
the Apostle, and continued to our present day, ending with a Paul of the
Electronic Age, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. They have focus on the problems in the world and the Church at these
crucial times in our history, the men the Lord sent to save the world and
the Church from destruction, the struggles they encountered along the way,
and the ultimate triumph of Jesus through His Powerful Men in the Church.
