This book attempts to give glimpses of the way that God confronted saintly personages. These are accounts as told by these Saints and Seers. They describe how God transformed their entire being and oriented it to Himself.
Through the ages, great souls have appeared who have seen God face to face and have walked with Him during their lives. They may belong to different times and they may have been born in different lands. But they are, all of them, Pilgrims to the Eternal who lived, moved and had their entire being in God.
Some of them had this instinct for God, implanted in their hearts since birth. The souls of some others, which they had ignorantly mortgaged to the enticements of the world, were miraculously redeemed by God and they turned a new leaf in their lives.
A few others had to struggle the hard way against obstacles to their devotion and had to face privation, poverty and even persecution. But like the true devotees that they were, they transformed these hindrances into opportunities to strengthen them in their resolve not to be deflected from their quest for God.
