"The city's going to be destroyed by earthquake " one excited person exclaimed. "No, fire and brimstone are going to fall from Heaven " said others. "It's the end of the whole world, not just the city of Lima " declared still others. What on earth had the saintly Father Francis Solano said last night in that sermon he gave in the market-place? Why, it was now midnight and the whole city was in an uproar There was a long line in front of every confessional. Candlelight processions with the Blessed Sacrament wound through the streets. Stolen goods were being returned to their owners. Enemies were reconciled. Unbaptized children were baptized, marriages were rectified, debts were paid. The Viceroy and the Archbishop held a hasty meeting. Then the Viceroy issued an order to his officers: "Go to the monastery and bring Father Francis here at once We have to get to the bottom of this " What was going to happen now? This book gives the answer. It also tells about the terrible plague, the slaves on the sinking ship, the Indians on the warpath, and Francis' worldly friend, John. In short, this is the wonderful story of the great St. Franics Solano, Wonder-Worker of the New World and Apostle of Argentina and Peru.
