The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann, OFM 

Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler's dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of Evil, Gereon Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained, and secretly minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you.

Father Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice.

Discover other miraculous “coincidences” in the life of SS officer Goldmann that testify to the protection of being “under the wings of God.”

  • How Himmler gave Gereron permission to practice his faith
  • How his assignment to Lourdes and Rome at critical moments fulfilled prophecy
  • How he escaped execution after being arrested for his role in the plot to assassinate Hilter!
  • How he constructed chapels, preached 2000 sermons, and started a school of theology

Fr. Gereon received the wisdom to discern God’s will and the courage to carry it out from his devotion to the Eucharist and his pledge to “do the right thing” despite all opposition. And, most important, he learned that your prayers will be heard--you only have to follow where He leads.

 

Abandonment to Divine Providence

“Let go and let God.”

This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade’s 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence. Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life. With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection. True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace. We do not have to understand what is happening—we simply have to believe that God is in control and orders all things to our good. What comes of this complete dependence on God’s provision? Only perfect peace, perfect freedom, and perfect love.
