The official biography of Peter Joseph Triest (founder of the Brothers of Charity) is now available to the general public in several languages.
Several biographies have already been written about Peter Joseph Triest. The first one was published a year after his death, and since then several Brothers and Sisters of the congregations he founded have portrayed Triest’s life and charism. For the process of beatification, which has entered the Roman phase, a new biography had to be compiled on the basis of a thorough research of many different sources. It became the ‘official’ biography of Peter Joseph Triest, now being made available to the general public in several languages.
God’s love was the driving force in his life and the source from which he radiated love to his neighbor, especially to those men and women who lived on the fringes of society due to illness or poverty. It is this divine love that brought him to the periphery of existence. Others were then inspired by him to walk along the same way of charity … and continue to be inspired even to this very day to journey along that path.
