The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann, OFM
Abridged and read by Matthew Arnold
Fr. Gereon Goldmann was drafted into Hitler's army while he was still a seminarian, and later assigned to the dreaded S.S. Throughout World War II he remained faithful to his Catholic convictions, proclaiming the faith to his Nazi countrymen. From his wartime ordination to his construction of a prison chapel, this thrilling true-life adventure is an inspirational testimony to God's providence and the power of prayer.
Fr. Gereon Goldmann
I loved hearing a German Catholic talk about his experiences in WWII. I also was inspired by the tenacity with which he pursued his vocation and clung to his faith and morals in an impossible situation. My father lived through that war as a boy, and I know that no where near all Germans were Nazis. It's nice to hear that from a media source!
The story of Father Goldman is miraculous, the faith of those around me, his faith during such a difficult time. A German catholic in Hitler's army, trully restored my faith that there were so many good men there, eventhough you get one picture of the nazi horrors from history. This is a personal account that is more humane.
I enjoyed listening to Father Goldmann's incredible experience and faith increased by the prayer of the nun. It helped me believe even more that prayer is powerful.
