Product Details

Fr. Augustus Tolton was a hero, not in the sense of physical ability, but in the sense of spirit. In his book, Father Augustus Tolton, author Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers brings the reader the story of this man who overcame slavery, his father's death and denial to entry to all the seminaries in the United States at that time to become a shining light to the slaves in the South. He became a tireless worker and "messenger of God" in a time when slavery was decreed by law. His work involved teaching that the Catholic Church wanted to free people not just from slavery of the body but also from the slavery of sin.

In Father Augustus Tolton, Deacon Burke-Sivers includes some of his own experiences with concrete examples on "how to advance our spiritual lives" while tying all the writing to the wisdom of the Scriptures and the saints. The book is a paperback book with 176 pages.
