I Served a Saint: Reflections of a Swiss Guard in Honor of the Centenary of the Birth of St. John Paul II
Newman House Press, 127 pages
During the pontificate of Pope St. John Paul II “we had an extraordinary example of human greatness, first with his apostolic vigor and then through his witness of faithfulness in suffering. Even in his end-stage illness, he pointed the way to an authentic human growth in all its dimensions, a growth nourished by spiritual food.” Through his reminiscences collected here from his daily personal contact, Former Swiss Guard Mario Enzler touchingly portrays the beloved pontiff as a man of immense faith, hope, joy, humility, intellect, and strength. The lessons he learned from John Paul are those we can all glean from this unique and marvelous work.
