Anyone who uses online technology today is aware that the traditional print industry is changing.  More and more people are now downloading their books and other reading material to portable devices.  Br. Randall J. Meissen, LC, author of the book Living Miracles: The Spiritual Sons of John Paul the Great, knows this first hand.

 

The digital edition of his book for the Amazon Kindle e-reader briefly held the number one spot in the Amazon Kindle store’s “Catholicism/Popes” category.  In a 14-day period, more than 1100 people downloaded the book for their Kindle.  For a short time, the book even outranked Witness to Hope, the popular biography of John Paul II.  

 

Br. Randall presently resides at the Legion’s Center for Higher Studies in Rome where he is studying theology in preparation for priestly ordination.  He said the book is “my way of saying thank you to Blessed John Paul II for showing us that Christian heroism is not lost in the past.  It is part of our mission today as Catholics of the 21st century.”

 

Br. Randall told Zenit the book discusses what the "‘JP2 revolution’ priests have in common and how God chose to plant and nourish the seed of their vocations through the witness of the Bishop of Rome.”

Living Miracles features a foreword by Archbishop Charles Chaput and illustrations by Regnum Christi member Mimi Sternhagen.   Those interested in getting a copy of the digital version of Br. Meissen’s book can click here.  The Kindle version costs $7.95 to download.  The book is published by Mission Network and the ISBN number is 1933271272.
