Editorial Reviews


"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

About the Author

One the most prolific and influential Catholic journalists of the twentieth century, Gary MacEoin (1909-2003) was the author of twenty-five books, including The People's Church: Bishop Samuel Ruiz of Mexico and Why He Matters, as well as the editor of The Papacy and the People of God. During his seventy-year career, MacEoin was an accomplished editor, speechwriter, public relations spokesman, union representative, and most importantly, champion for social justice. MacEoin had a long-standing relationship with the National Catholic Reporter dating from the paper's beginnings in the 1960s.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides a very detailed history of the development of the Congregation of Holy Cross and the strife of Blessed Basil Moreau. MacEoin spends little effort in hiding his admiration of the founder and uses some rather awkward sentence structure, creating a jarring effect on the reader. However, the book single-handedly bore, raised, and nurtured my deep love of Blessed Basil and my appreciation for the wonder of Holy Cross, namely that it not only still exists but thrives! I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Holy Cross and especially for any University of Notre Dame student or alumni.
