For almost thirty years Saint Charles, who died in 1893, was visited daily by hundreds of people who came to Mount Argus in Dublin to receive his blessing and to be prayed over for physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
This biography reveals Charles’ inner struggles through which he learned compassion and understanding for others. Removed from Dublin for a time ‘because of his extraordinary cures’, he was until the end of his life subjected to criticism and humiliation, even within his own religious community. Crippled by constant pain in his later years, he continued to devote his life to the poor, the sick and the needy. Drawing the strength to bear his own suffering from the Passion of Christ, he was able to bring to them the compassionate love of Jesus Crucified.
