Written by Felix Carroll, Loved, Lost, Found is a collection of beautiful stories of everyday people who discover God's extraordinary mercy. They include a former abortionist, a blind man, an unfaithful husband, a former cult member, a rape victim, a prisoner, a former "workaholic," and a survivor of the "Miracle on the Hudson" plane crash, among others.
The book begins with a story about Maureen Digan, whose miraculous healing in 1981 led to the beatification of Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska. Now recognized as a saint, this nun's revelations in the 1930s, known today as the message of Divine Mercy, play a major role in each one of the conversion stories in this collection. Through St. Faustina, Jesus reiterates for our times the Gospel message that He is Love and Mercy itself, calling us to turn to Him in trust, receive His mercy, and extend His mercy to others.
This is a fabulous book. What does our world need more than mercy? People everywhere are hurting and hungry for the compassionate mercy of God. By reading this book you will learn how to bring God's mercy to all those who cross your path. -Matthew Kelly, founder of DynamicCatholic.com and author of The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic
Truly, this is one of the best books I have ever read. Loved, Lost, Found is a book to cherish and to give copies of to everyone you know, be they skeptics or ardent Catholics. In our grim times, how we need to read about these victories of Divine Mercy in the lives of people as diverse as a dentist, a blind Jew turned Catholic, and a former abortionist. We even read about the father of a murdered daughter who tries to save her murderer from execution and a woman in a New Age cult who is attacked by Satan but then finds freedom in God?s mercy. Felix Carroll is a wonderful stylist. He enters into the heart and soul and life of each of those he interviews, so that each one comes alive for us as we see the person transformed by the mercy of Jesus. Loved, Lost, Found also has insights about life in general that will surprise and enlighten you. Congratulations, Marian Press, on Loved, Lost, Found. -Ronda Chervin, Ph.D. Professor of Philosophy and Spirituality, Holy Apostles College and Seminary
Pope Paul VI once said that we listen more willingly today to witnesses than to teachers, and that if we do listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses. Felix Carroll has given us 17 witnesses in this beautiful book who teach us through the stories of their lives that God?s mercy is available to us as well. I highly recommend this book which is hard to put down. Felix has done a wonderful job of showing us that God is real, that He is close to us, and that He is doing great things in people?s lives. We learn what is possible if we open our hearts and trust in God?s merciful love. - Fr. Joseph G. Roesch, MIC Vicar General of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception
