The events of Fr Roman Braga’s life unfolded on three continents in complex and tumultuous times. In Romania, he lived through turbulent historical events, and he suffered for Christ under communist persecution. Later he continued his life and ministry in Brazil, and ended his days in the United States. He was a confessor of the faith and spiritual father of great wisdom and compassion, who shared Christ's love with all who came his way. This text presents the life of Fr Roman Braga, while also exploring the broader historical context in which he lived. Most fundamentally, it reveals the transfigured life of a man who is close to us in time, but who passed far beyond us in his spiritual life, who was not broken but rather transformed by God’s grace, even in the midst of the horrors of torture and imprisonment. He continues to shine as a beacon of God’s love, and a witness to His power to overcome even the greatest of evils.

    The author did a good job of describing the nuanced political situation in Romania leading up to and at the time of Fr. Roman’s imprisonment. There are many footnotes if the reader wants more detail, but it is a fine read without the added footnotes. There are a few quotes and excerpts sprinkled in the historic first chapters, but those become more lengthy and plentiful as the book unfolds. The photos are also very nice. This was very good.

    The Journey of a Saint

    Fr. Roman stands before the throne of God and intercedes for his spiritual children from all over the world. America needs Fr. Roman and if you want to know him, you need this book.

    Hefty! Easier to read, large print. Great photos, well documented. A chance to get to know more about a contemporary witness for Christ!
