The Shadow of His Wings by Fr. Gereon Karl Goldmann OFM

I just finished a fabulous book that I am highly recommending, The Shadow of His Wings. Back in May, I received a CD by the same titles distributed by Lighthouse Catholic Media. The CD read excerpts from the book about the amazing story of a German seminarian who was conscripted into the SS of the Nazi army during WWII.

The autobiography relates the details of the completely unlikely ordination of Karl Goldmann to the holy priesthood and his several miraculous near death escapes in the 1940s.

But that isn't the whole story. What really impressed me, was the life that Fr. Goldmann went on to live after WWII. Becoming a missionary in Japan and the impact on the thousands of lives there and throughout his life. This book shows the power of one life, well lived, in accordance with God's grace.

Get a copy today and read it. It is published by Ignatius Press. You will be enthralled, inspired and encouraged!
