By Eddie Doherty
The famous journalist Eddie Doherty was a faithful Catholic and a man of ardent spirituality who found in the example and writings of St. Louis de Montfort a wealth of inspiration, insight and strength for his spiritual life. Convinced of the importance of bringing others to know this man whose life and teaching had influenced him so strongly so that they too might share in this same wealth, he undertook the project of utilizing his skills as an investigative journalist to produce a biography his patron. Doherty's treatment of the life of Fr. de Montfort is engaging, accurate and clearly presented, providing a solid introduction to the life of the Good Father from Montfort.
