St Charles de Foucauld

In December 1916, deep in the Sahara, an unknown French hermit was shot through the head and dumped in a ditch. He was 58.

In December 1916, deep in the Sahara, an unknown French hermit was shot through the head and dumped in a ditch. He was 58.

An accomplished geographer, linguist and explorer, in youth he had been a disillusioned soldier and aristocratic playboy.
Why at 30 did he abandon family, career, everything, to search for ‘the last place’, close to the poor and suffering?

This audiobook describes his epic pilgrimage from misery to love and of silent witness to Christ among the Tuareg of the Sahara, including his writings and prayers, and the work being done today by Little Brothers and Sisters of Jesus.
