VG in G DJ. Hecker, missionary, journalist, priest & founder of the Paulist Fathers, was one of the most active churchmen of the 19th. Century as missionary to Catholic & non-Catholic America. His faith was based on a mystical vision of God's action in the human soul, in modern society & in the church, a vision shaped during his early days as a student at the Transcendentalist commune, Brook Farm, & later as a convert to Catholicism in his native NYC. The richness of these years were captured in a diary he kep from 1843-1845, a remarkable document that detailed his soul's journey & a fascinating reflection of the New England Renaissance that so shaped his Romantic spirituality.
