"Gary MacEoin's biography of Fr. Moreau appears at a most appropriate time, when many, even many of us who know Fr. Moreau, want to learn more about his life and contribution to the church and society. MacEoin's gentle and respectful style brings Fr. Moreau to life in a way few others of his biographers have, and I hope this new edition receives wide reading." --Father Rev. John Jenkins, C.S.C.
, President, the University of Notre Dame
"Through his bold attention to both the dark and light facts of Basil Moreau's life, Gary MacEoin illuminates the virtues of zeal, humility, and forgiveness that guided Moreau's life, virtues that will challenge every reader." --Sister Joy O'Grady, C.S.C.
, President of Sisters of the Holy Cross
"Father Moreau's story is one of hope in turbulent times, one that still inspires us to be faithful to our call in spite of difficulties and obstacles. The Holy Cross tradition he founded continues to benefit the world, and his vision for teaching young people is as stimulating today as it was then." --George E. Martin, PhD
, President, St. Edward's University
