Product Description

During France's turbulent days in the 1790s, thirteen-year-old Simon Bruté, who is hiding priests from the guillotine, has no idea the route his impassioned soul will take. When the Reign of Terror subsides, Bruté travels to Paris, where he receives honours at the College of Medicine. But, in response to a deeper yearning, the young man shifts gears, enrols at a seminary, and eventually becomes a priest. The fire is lit, and Bruté burns to preach to distant Indians. And in 1810, he is sent to America by his religious order. But not as a missionary, but as a great theologian-president for their Baltimore seminary! He bows, crushed, recognising this huge disappointment as God's plan. However, from the depths of his mind and heart, Fr Bruté, with his awful English and endearing peculiarities, increasingly affects the lives of many people, including St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who would play an important part in shaping the nascent Catholic Church in the United States. When a missionary call to the border arrives in 1834, it appears to be too late. Fr Bruté, on the other hand, reacts with all his soul and becomes the first bishop of Vincennes, Indiana. Bruté is a living legend, and his tireless and loving devotion warms hearts wherever he goes. His Cause for Canonization is currently being aggressively promoted.
