In a culture that views good as evil and evil as good, and where it often takes courage to live according to God’s ways, we need the saints. If the demands of life leave you little time to read, but you want to learn from the lives of holy men and women, this book is for you.
Since the foundation of the Catholic Church, 2000 years ago, God has blessed His people with an abundance of grace. Many men and women have lived lives of such great holiness that the Church has declared them saints. They came from many different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities. While faced with the same frailties and temptations as you and I, a common thread that united them all: their love for Jesus Christ.
The saints can benefit every one of us today in many ways. We can benefit by turning to them for their intercession and by imitating their virtuous lives. This book contains 25 short biographies including Venerable Bishop Sheen, known for his work on television and radio; Saint Gianna Molla, a working mom who laid down her life for her unborn baby; and Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to be recognized as a saint.
Take the time out of your busy day to learn about the lives of the saints. Let them inspire you to fight the good fight and remain steadfast on the steep and narrow road that leads to Eternal Life.
