The life and mission of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos led him from the Bavarian Alps in Germany to the United States where he worked tirelessly to fill the spiritual needs of everyone he encountered. His final assignment took him to post-Civil War New Orleans, where he continued to minister to others in need before falling himself to the yellow fever epidemic.

Written in the first person and accompanied by excerpts from letters Blessed Seelos wrote to his family, confreres, and others, Father Richard Boever, CSsR, highlights the struggles and successes of missionary life, with a personal touch. With abundant joy and deep devotion to Jesus and Mary, the short life of Father Seelos blessed all the lives he touched.
