  • Lay Saints: Models of Family Life
  • An encouraging, hopeful read
  • Perfect reminder that not only monks and nuns can be saints
  • Discover saints with the same struggles that you have

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.

    By far the book with the most replicas. I counted about 25 of the entries being of saints that are also in the other three books. That's nearly 50% of the book! Still, excellent biographies and worth owning to complete the set.
