Summary
Idealistic young people volunteer to serve the poor around the world, in the most miserable conditions, living in the same manner as those they are called to help. These "new friars" come from a variety of religious, social, and ethnic backgrounds, and yet recall the dedicated religious from Franciscan, Jesuit, Poor Claretian, and Celtic traditions of centuries past. The author's sincere passion for the poor and admiration for the subjects of this book show clearly through his narrative. -- Description by: Katherine Johnson
