The following are essays narrated by Joe Roberts regarding some of the most famous important people and events in Catholic history. They differ from other biographies and accounts in that they are seen through the eyes of some of the approved mystics of the Catholic Church. They are first-person descriptions focusing on the more personal aspects of these personalities. i.e. the color of the Blessed Mother's hair, the height of Moses, the color of St. Peter's beard, etc. By means of these essays, Joe hopes to illustrate how human and approachable these people can be, while providing you with a word-picture to keep in mind that might enliven your prayers and meditations.
