Priest and Beggar - The Heroic Life of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz
In 1957, at twenty-seven years old, Washington D.C. native Fr. Aloysius Schwartz asked to be sent to the saddest place in the world: South Korea in the wake of the Korean War. Now just a few months into his priesthood, he stepped off the train into a dystopian novel. Squatters with blank stares picked through hills of garbage. Paper-fleshed orphans lay on the streets like leftover war landmines. The scenes crushed him.
