The story of two men who were... Fools for the sake of Christ
Available in .pdf

This book is a compilation of some pages and excerpts of writings about St. Arnold Janssen and St. Joseph Freinademetz. Why did these two quite different men walk through the streets of life as “fools for Christ’s sake”? What joins them together?

The story starts with the childhood, school years and the priesthood of Joseph Freinademetz and continues with the birthday of vision of Fr. Arnold Janssen about mission seminary. We can journey together with Fr. Joseph and experience his joys and struggles in his desired mission – China. The letters of Fr. Arnold shows us his great concern about the life of seminarians and brothers. There are bright lights and deep shadows, joy and sorrow, work and hardship, patience and toil, prayer, a tireless prayer in the lives of these two great missionaries.

Reading the book we can draw inspiration, encouragement and experience gratefulness for such examples of faith and perseverance.
