The Visionary: Welcome to the Fold
Father Marcus Ignatius Leeds, a Jesuit priest, has no idea what he's really getting into when he arrives in Boston, Massachusetts. As a Vatican City investigator for the Congregation of the Causes of Saints, his job is to authenticate or disprove reported supernatural events, everything from bleeding statues to heavenly visions. Over and over again, he's been disappointed to find only hopefuls with vivid imaginations or hoaxers with too much idle time on their hands.
While traveling the world doing God's work, Marcus hasn't had the time to develop close, personal relationships and as a result, he finds himself at silent odds with his monastic life. Debunking so many cases constitutes an outstanding track record in the eyes of his superiors, but in the process Marcus has lost hope of ever witnessing a true miracle. He's begun to question the value of his profession and the worth of his solemn vows.
The report of a Boston teenager exhibiting the stigmata—the holy wounds of Christ—becomes Marcus's salvation. What he finds in the wealthy Brookline neighborhood shakes the very foundation of his faith, igniting a series of events that will forever change the world—and Marcus. After years of disillusionment, he finally discovers a genuine miracle, which to his amazement brings him the love of his life.
