On December 18, 2017, Pope Francis declared that Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., lived a life of heroic virtue and gave him the title "venerable," marking another step closer to sainthood for the "Rosary Priest." This new edition of Peyton's biography tells the story of his life and dedication to the Blessed Mother as he discerned his vocation, overcame the obstacles of advanced tuberculosis and lack of education, and became a priest who eventually preached to more than 28 million people worldwide, worked with Hollywood stars, and founded Family Rosary and Family Theatre Productions.
This new edition of Peyton's autobiography, originally published in 1967 and reissued in a revised edition in 1997, includes black and white photos and a new foreword by Holy Cross Family Ministries president Fr Willy Raymond, C.S.C., reflecting on Peyton's legacy as a saint for family prayer and his cause for canonisation.
Meet one of the newest candidates for sainthood: a priest who was formed by his own family's Rosary devotion, and his formation as a Holy Cross priest, to promote peace and unity across the globe through family prayer.
Peyton, probably best known for the inspirational phrases "the family that prays together stays together" and "a world at prayer is a world at peace", encouraged family prayer and devotion to the Rosary throughout his ministry. In his autobiography, the Rosary Priest reflects on his journey from a farm boy in Western Ireland to one of the most effective missionaries of the modern age.
