Liberia, Africa was a country that became synonymous for corruption, poverty and death. Samuel K. Doe and Charles Taylor were warlords that razed a once beautiful land and brought down terror on innocent Liberians. Author Jerome Cabeen stepped off a plane in September of 2008 into the unknown world of West Africa and Liberia. Along with his wife Clarisa he had come to the war-torn and desolate country to serve as a Catholic missionary for one year.
God had other plans.
“Memoirs of a Reluctant Servant” is a chronicle of the triumphs and sorrows experienced by Cabeen while serving in Liberia. Questions of faith, truth and self sacrifice were constant and sometimes overwhelming obstacles in his path while living in the country. It is a riveting and tragic account of the death and destruction that swept through all parts of Liberia from 1980 until 2003 during two separate civil wars and what one Catholic mission is doing to re-build the country and save its children.
David Dionisi, founder and President of Teach Peace Foundation says of the book:
“It is a fascinating, real world story about compassion and courage. This is a must read for any Catholic or person that has empathy for the suffering of others.”
