The Missionary of Wall Street: From Managing Money to Saving Souls on the Streets of New York
Sophia Institute Press, 184 pages
Steve Auth, a seasoned Wall Street financial wizard, doesn’t quite fit the stereotype it conjures. He also organizes street missions in New York City whereby teams of missionaries stationed at intersections near churches ask passers-by if they are Catholic, offer them a rosary, and invite them inside where priests are waiting to hear Confessions. It’s a gritty, courageous apostolate, and it gets results. This inspiring book describes how it’s done, tells what it means to have the “heart of a missionary,” and relates moving stories of the encounters Auth and his teams have experienced in inviting strangers to accept the love and mercy of Christ.
