Anthony Claret was born in Barcelona, Spain. He was the archbishop of Santiago, Cuba. He realized that if his parishioners did not read good books, they would choose books that turned them away from God. He began printing pamphlets and booklets for them about the faith. Realizing success in this, he worked diligently to write and print over one hundred books about the Catholic faith.
