Saint José Is In Print!

My New Book!
Dear Friends,
I got a nice surprise in the mail yesterday. It was the catalog from a publishing house called Ignatius Press. In the new book section was a book I wrote, called “Saint José”.
This has been a long time coming! I started writing in 2005, and I was making the very last edits just this Monday. Fourteen years is a lot, but the results are worth it, I think. 
You may have heard of José. He was a fourteen year-old Mexican boy who died rather than deny his faith during the Cristero War in Mexico in 1928.
Hearing his story when I was twelve was powerful inspiration for me to become a priest.  At the time, I was devouring the lives of the saints, especially a series that Ignatius published called the Vision Series. But when I looked for something about José, I found nothing.

Now José is a saint, and now my book is the latest in the Vision Series. God is so good! I hope to write many more! (Right now, I'm working on Saint Kevin of Glendalough)
The Ignatius Press Catalog
The book goes to print today and it is already available for preorder on the Ignatius website here. It will be available April 28th. I think it would be a great confirmation or even first holy communion present. Saint José's story is inspiring for all.
May you have a blessed beginning of Spring!
Father Kevin
