Francis X. Levy is one of the most prolific and protean writers of the experience of Christian faith. His knowledge is vast, his eye is tender and watchful of the human detail, and his skill at communication makes his work a gift on the journey toward holiness. Father John F. Schweikert, M.S.C. - Associate Retreat Director Francis Levy’s autobiography Vestigia reveals a life given to prayer in face of the mysterious ways of God whether joyous or sorrowful. He has written, not to extol his virtues - although they shine from these pages - but to encourage others that in life, the answer to every situation is prayer. Patricia Treece - Author of various books on saints and mysticism, including A Man for Others, Nothing Short of a Miracle, Meet Padre Pio, Mornings with Thérèse of Lisieux and Through the Year with Padre Pio. A Southerner from birth, Francis Levy lived through the Depression and saw first-hand the horrors of segregation - a rule of life that was commonplace and held sacred by many, but which Levy never accepted. Government programs and the outbreak of World War II brought the Depression to a rapid conclusion, but young Francis was thrust into the teeth of the war. An era of economic progress ensued, but the Korean War soon called Levy back to military service. Through hardship, five years of active service, and engineering jobs with leading governmental contractors, Francis Levy lived his faith and relied on the power of prayer to serve his needs. More than the story of one life, Levy’s spiritual memoir powerfully illustrates the efficacy of prayer, through many stories of subtle and miraculous answers. About the Author Francis Xavier Levy was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 10, 1925, the fifth of nine children. A graduate of Loyola University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics, he was a Naval officer during two wars and an engineer in civilian life. Through all the turmoil, Levy’s Roman Catholic faith has always been his life.
