Remembered as a devoted and passionate defender of the Faith, Cardinal Edward Egan played a pivotal role in revitalizing the Catholic Church in New York. From strengthening parishes and schools to expanding religious education programs and inviting new religious orders to the City, he left an indelible mark on the faithful in New York and beyond.

In the year prior to his death in March 2015, Cardinal Egan collected and edited fifty articles he had written over several decades to be published in this single volume.

With an approachable yet elegant style, you'll read about his interaction with a music store clerk who reluctantly sold him heavy-metal music he was buying as research for an upcoming talk to students. You'll read how the books he gave to two pagans led them to pray together for the first time, and how he convinced a hotel manager to read a chapter from St. Francis de Sales's Introduction to the Devout Life.
