Product Description

•••••

In this edgy, honest, and often audacious book of Catholic spirituality, blogger and popular podcaster Maria Morera Johnson explores the qualities of twenty-four holy women who lived lives of virtue in unpredicted and often difficult circumstances.

In ‘My Badass Book of Saints: Courageous Women Who Showed Me How to Live,’ Johnson shares her experience as a first-generation Cuban-American, educator of at-risk college students, and caregiver for a husband with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Through witty, empowering, and touching portraits of twenty-four spiritual mentors who inspired her, Maria Johnson shows how their valor, integrity, selflessness, perseverance, and hope helped her and can help others have courage to reach for a closer connection to God.

She presents incredible holy women and saints—including the gun-toting Servant of God Sr. Blandina Segale, who tried to turn the heart of Billy the Kid; and Nazi resister Irena Sendler, who helped smuggle children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II—in a way that brings their vivid personalities to life and assists readers to live out the opposition of their lives with virtue and conviction. This stunning book also includes a group discussion guide.
