Product Details


“Lawyer, Dean of the Notre Dame Law School, husband, father, grandfather, widower, and now, Catholic priest. Father Dave Link’s story is an inspiration and a challenge to us all.  In his priesthood, Father Dave does more than just visit the incarcerated men he serves; he helps to truly transform their lives.  Camerado, I Give You My Hand brings the story of this remarkable man and dedicated priest to life.” – Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York

“Who are the ‘least”‘ of our brothers and sisters, to use Jesus’s own words?  Surely among the most forgotten and least cared for are men and women behind bars, whose ranks grow every year.  Often seen by many as undeserving of any sort of human care, indeed of any kind of attention, prison inmates are, in the Christian worldview, among the most deserving of pastoral care.  The deeply moving story of Dr. David T. Link reminds us how God can be found anywhere, how Jesus makes himself known in surprising ways among the poor and marginalized, and why ‘visiting the imprisoned’ is one of the greatest of all works of mercy.” – James Martin, SJ, author The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

“In this compelling narrative, you will find the life of a man whose passion is making a difference in the lives of the poor, homeless, and prisoners. He and his wife, Barbara, gave themselves with intensity to the powerless and the voiceless while, at the same time, raising a strong loving family. After Barbara’s death, his distinguished career as Dean of the Notre Dame Law School, and as the founder of Notre Dame, Australia, the Lord called Dave to dedicate his remaining years to witness His healing love as priest to men behind bars. Here, you will find the loving testimony of the men themselves both powerful and uplifting.” — Reverend Dale J. Melczek, Bishop of Gary, Indiana
