Lay Saints: Models of Family Life

Everyone has dreams and goals that they want to achieve, but the foremost and overarching goal for every Catholic, and the only one that brings true happiness, should be to become a saint and enjoy the Beatific Vision. It is a momentous task that can often seem overwhelming and unattainable. Indeed, without the aid of grace it is impossible. But confident hope can be placed in God that He will always provide the grace necessary to accomplish such a feat. The saints in this volume are evidence of this fact and serve as role models for cooperation with the action of God’s grace.

Within this volume are fifty-eight saints who achieved holiness as husbands, wives, parents, or youth. Some lived in marital bliss with never a quarrel; others suffered greatly at the hands of their spouse, and many became saints while still at a tender young age. Each of these saints has qualities to be emulated in living as a member of a family, whether patience is needed in bearing with the faults of a spouse, or temperance is needed to check a natural inclination to anger.


 Lay Saints: The Noble and the Humble

In Lay Saints: The Noble and the Humble, Joan Carroll Cruz guides you through the lives of sixty-one lay men and women who achieved the heights of sanctity. These inspiring biographies present saints, whether kings and queens or peasants and farmers, who sanctified their daily work through the application of prayer and virtue.

Find a role model from among these saints as Joan Carroll Cruz explores:

their acts of humilty that you can imitate

  • how they performed their daily tasks with love
  • stories of the saintly leadership of truly Catholic rulers
  • how small, habitual acts of virtue lead to perfection

The saints in this volume range from the great kings and queens of Europe, who were the epitome of true leadership and by whose example whole nations were converted, to the humble farmers and day laborers, who went about their work giving praise to God and calling others to the way of Perfection.
