Summary

Summary

In His saints, God is manifest as goodness, power and truth, The variety of saints reflects the infinite beauty and love of the God whose image they most perfectly reflect.

This collection of portraits of the lives of twelve saints, many less well-known, focuses on how each of these particular men and women have a specific message that is significant for those living in our challenging times.

Though they lived in other times, these twelve saints faced problems similar in many ways to those of our present day. Among the twelve featured here are Paschal Baylon, saint of the Eucharist; Margaret Clitherow, a mother and martyr; Isidore, a farmer; Margaret of Castello, an outcast; Gemma Galgani, a lay stigmatist; Robert Southwell, a poet, and six more.

Ivan Innerst presents a true and lifelike picture of each saint whose life has more inspiration to offer today's Christian than has previously been widely known. Each saint has something to share on a range of topical questions for today to help usbetter live the Gospel message.
