Alone Against the World

By Jonathan Lynch. I have been waiting a long time for his feast day (May 2nd) to come around so I could write this article. His life has all the marks of a crime thriller mixed with an adventure saga and a religious novel: betrayal, manhunts, intrigue, escape, and all the formidable power of his enemies building up into a climactic tower that crumbled at his touch, for in his soul was all the power of a friend of God...
