An artist for God despite the hardship: the truly inspiring story of Michael O’Brien | News | LifeSite

Michael O'Brien from Barry's Bay, Ontario is without a doubt the greatest Canadian Catholic novelist and writer of his time. I have read every one of his books and can honestly say that there isn't a dud in the bunch. In fact, his 'Father Elijah' is the book I power-read at the start of every annual retreat I make up in the woods of northern Quebec. The themes in that book set the agenda of a healthy priestly retreat without fail.

This article is an account of his adult life. I am not at all surprised to discover that it is as inspirational as are his books and paintings. Hopefully, you will find it so as well.
