Amleto Cicognani was Apostolic Delegate for the United States and came to know that this young nation is also raising men and women to become saints! All are familiar with the North American Martyrs, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, John Neumann and Junipero Serra. But there are many others who have found sanctity in America. How many are aware that a priest was shot and killed while distributing Holy Communion in Denver? What of the religious communities founded in the United States by holy men and women? Imagine the obstacles faced by these people as they sought to establish the Catholic Church in this wild and wooly country. We hope you find these stories as inspiring as we did. St. Alphonsus writes: “a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery.” Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: “There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!” We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.
