HERE AT LAST is the story requested by so many people! The book recounts my action-packed life from 1923 up to October, 14, 2014, the date of its publication.  The book was published by Corpus Christi Watershed, edited by its President, Jeffrey Ostrowski, who also wrote the Epilogue.  The Prologue of the book was written by Father J. Patrick Serna, Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Sinton, Texas.
The book contains 217 pages, is bound in Softcover and contains many full color images, some of them rare, such as my original sketch/doodle for the main altar of the Saint Vincent Archabbey Basilica in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.I wrote the book hoping that the details of my life would be a source of inspiration and comfort to its readers.  My life of trials and tribulations convinced me that in my case, as in the case of the lives of so many other people, God does “write straight with crooked lines” as the Portuguese proverb puts it.  Also, I have tried to show that the “little way” of seeking holiness explicitly described by Saint Therese, The Little Flower, consists for many of us heroically performing the duties and responsibilities attached to our state of life.  Since I experienced so many different states of life during my almost 100 year pilgrimage,  hopefully the reader will find plenty to identify with when reading this book.The book was produced by Père Isaac Jogues Art Productions.  It was printed by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; nn58 edition (October 10, 2014) and was published by Corpus Christi Watershed on October 14, 2014.

An Ordinary’s Not So Ordinary Life was written to inspire Catholics to follow Jesus Christ.
