This fascinating and inspiring book offers us a new look at the saints. From the ancient martyrs to the sixteenth-century mystics to the modern-day missionaries, Anne Gordon profiles some of the real-life men and women who became God's human representatives on Earth--and whose moving stories of courage and determination, unconditional love and self-sacrifice still speak to us today.   Discover the moral strength of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, "the apostle of Auschwitz," whose last selfless act of humanity provided a beacon of hope for the world in a time of darkness; the compassion of Mother Frances Cabrini, whose faith, persistence, and gentle humor helped build sixty-seven charitable institutions; and the wisdom of Saint Anthony, the desert saint whose life was a testament to the healing power of silence, solitude, and prayer. To help readers become closer to these heavenly intermediaries, uplifting prayers accompany the profile of each saint.   Discover, too, true stories of everyday people whose lives have been touched--and whose prayers have been answered--with the help of the saints. Portraying the saints in their very human forms, Gordon shows how little different they are from ordinary people who also act out of kindness and concern for others.   Whether you seek comfort in troubled times or a new sense of purpose in your life, their shining examples can illuminate your path and lead you to a life lived more fully, genuinely, and joyfully than you've ever imagined.… (mer)
