A Pencil in Our Lord’s Hand
By Monica Organ
A Pencil in Our Lord’s Hand brings to life the love, humanity, and deep divinity that are at the core of Father Joe’s charism. The rich history, powerful imagery, and personal reflections from people who actually knew him, all enhance your belief in Fr. Joe’s cause for sainthood, and shows the immense impact that Fr. Joe had on every life he touched. Through what can only be described as Divine Providence, Father Joe overcame obstacles and was able to discern God’s call among constant difficulties. The line “Joe Walijewski may not be the most intelligent priest but he will be a holy priest,” stays with me because it reminds me that we are all blessed with talents, and even if they don’t fit the mold of what some call “success” you can still do great, and some may even say saintly, works.
