Stories of Yesterday, Today and Eternity

Regular price$19.95

A born storyteller, Catherine Doherty used stories to help her listeners glimpse the deep truths about life and the mysterious presence of God in events and persons.

The “Pilgrim Stories” are set around the fireside of Catherine’s childhood home in pre-Revolutionary Russia, where the family listened spellbound to the pilgrims to whom they offered hospitality on their journeys across Russia in search of God. [These] “stories are true in that their message is true,” she tells us. The “Blue Door Stories” are based on actual incidents from her apostolic life in the Friendship Houses of Toronto and Harlem and in Madonna House. The “How Stories” of Part Three, fruits of Catherine’s powerful imagination, are parables about the eternal truths of the spiritual life.
