I had read a few articles about Solanas Casey in the past but I found the book very inspiring I am praying that he will be named a saint because I feel that he was a very holy man

Grateful for Solanus

I’ve enjoyed learning more about this humble man through the book Gratitud and Grir: The Life of Solanus Casey. I now pray for his canonization so that he can soon join the ranks of our heavenly saints. I highly recommend this book on the life of Blessed Solanus Casey. I found it to be very inspiring.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the life of Blessed Solanus. Was surprised that we served in Yonkers in a Parish not far from where I currently live. I savored the book - reading it slowly, one chapter a day. It brought me peace and tranquility at a time when so much chaos is happening in the world. One of the babies in our family got sick shortly after I finished the book. I encouraged all my family members to pray to Blessed Solanus for her recover. She is out of the hospital and back home playing with her siblings. Thank you Blessed Solanus.
