Fr. Gereon Goldmann

2 11 2007

 In the early 1960s, Fr. Gereron Goldmann, a Franciscan stationed in Tokyo, felt moved by the Spirit to write his autobiography. Who was this Father Gereron, who the Japanese people knew only as a saintly priest? He was a former officer in Hitler’s personal dreaded SS!

I havent bought the book yet as I had bookmarked the page on amazon then forgot about it for months until just now.  It is my loss as his story sounds so incredible and remarkable I wouldn’t believe it unless he had actually written the book!   The book is titled The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann and is available on Amazon

The book is excellent – easily read, entertaining and inspiring. I recently finished it and often use it for stories.
