Capturing his beginnings as a seminarian and his contributions as a pioneer of Catholic media and a founder of various congregations, Catholic book familiarizes children 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 paster, 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.
