Patron Saint of Rascals is a book about an ordinary and extraordinary man named Ted Lothammer. With wisdom, wit and courage, Ted made a difference in the lives of many people. Trained first in group process by the Catholic Church, Ted moved on to the Esalen human potential movement of the early 1970s. He settled in Denver where he created People House, an alternative to both psychotherapy and organized religion. At one point in his life, Ted was given a cancer diagsis and four months to live. He regarded this experience with his usual irreverence and wisdom and, as usual, took responsibility for his own life. He lived many years beyond those four months. Ted had a long term marriage that was feisty and tender, touching people who got close eugh to observe it. In Patron Saint of Rascals, Cheryl Williams Card has captured the spirit of the man and his mission - Ted Lothammer's Legacy.
