In 1866, the Redemptorist Provincial requested that Fr. Seelos curtail his enthusiasm for letter writing. Fortunately for us, this request came just one year before his death. He leaves behind a collection of letters that reflects his spirituality and sanctity, and a compendium that represents the life and the times. This unique book contains 201 letters written by Seelos himself and provides extraordinary insight into the very core of who he was.
