We may think of the saints as people who lived lives of extreme piety, their days filled with prayer and holy acts, and at times even visions of the divine, but we may not realize these people endured struggles of faith and everyday life. No saint lived a life of perfection, but all were able to persevere in faith, becoming spiritual guides and models for Christian living. Amanda Roberts takes an in-depth look into all aspects of these lives so that we can find inspiration to follow their examples of holiness. She includes interesting facts about the life and times of each saint and reflection sections as well as questions for individual or group use. Paper.
