The Tale of Patrick Peyton vividly brings to life the American Apostle of the Family Rosary, Venerable Patrick Peyton. Born to a humble family in Ireland, the energetic young boy would embark on an adventure beyond his wildest dreams. His journey would take him to the United States where he would find his true calling as a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross and promoter of family prayer.
Father Peyton was ambitious in his mission and contacted popular Hollywood actors and actresses, such as Bing Crosby and Loretta Young, to help him convince families everywhere, “The family that prays together stays together.”
Using television, radio and film, Father Peyton was a modern-day missionary who went on to encourage devotion to the Blessed Mother and inspire families to pray together. His inspiring life story is now made accessible for the first time in a comic book format.

It's a fun read and understand the person of who he is.
I loved reading the life story of Fr. Patrick Peyton, as I grew up with his slogan, "The Family That Prays Together Stays Together."
I was mystified that the young man mentioned at the end wasn't identified as Jim Caviezel, as I've heard him speak about his encounter with Fr. Peyton, and can't imagine that he wouldn't give permission to do so....
I read this with my kids and all of us loved it. They've requested it daily!
