Blessed James Alberione; Media Apostle -- ESS #32
by Anne Eileen Heffernan FSP
Capturing his beginnings as a seminarian and his contributions as a pioneer of Catholic media and a founder of various congregations, this 32nd volume in the Encounter the Saints series familiarizes children ages 8 – 12 with the life story of Blessed James Alberione.
From a young age, James was convinced that God was calling him, but he wasn't sure what exactly God was calling him to do. After being ordained, receiving a doctorate in theology, becoming a spiritual director, teaching history, and serving as an associate pastor, James still felt unfulfilled. It wasn't until he recognized how the media-press, radio, and film-could be used to spread the Catholic faith that he began to discern his calling. He started a trade school for boys and taught them how to set type and print Catholic books and founded the Pauline Family with a mission of evangelization through the means of social communication.
Blessed James Alberione is a timely figure for young people in today's media-saturated world. With his guidance, children will be inspired to use positively all forms of media to spread the Catholic faith and will learn to trust in God's plan for them.
