Priest & Beggar: The Jaw-Dropping Story of Venerable Father Aloysius Schwartz

art of catholic podcast blog video Feb 14, 2024

He's already made a massive impact on my life and I still can't believe I'd never heard of the work of this incredible priest whom I firmly believe will one day be canonized.

Of course, that might be because he was extremely humble and begged God to leave him unknown.

But since the Lord brought him to my attention and put it on my heart to share his life with you, perhaps the veil is being further lifted.

Regardless, the story you're about to hear is a perfect lead-up to Lent and will leave you shaking your head in wonder.


Fr. Al has literally changed the world for hundreds of thousands of people on multiple continents and has impacted the Church in more ways than can be measured...and his work continues.

So take a listen to this interview with author & speaker Kevin Wells, a wonderful author (and now friend) who wrote a powerful book titled Priest & Beggar: The Heroic Life of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz.

I didn't ask for the book. It showed up in the mail via the Holy Spirit. (You'll hear the story in the interview.)

And now I'm passing along the story to you, because in the midst of a dark and angry world this story of joyful hope and suffering love is a salve to the soul.

God bless you,

Matthew
