The lives of the saints who helped build the Catholic Church in the United States—Frances Cabrini,
Isaac Jogues, John Neumann, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Damien de Veuster, among others—are marked by strength, courage, determination, and sanctity. But as this thoughtful and engaging book points out, these saints also could be foolhardy, obstinate, stubborn, and dismissive. What makes the stories of the
thirteen men and women in Fearless so compelling is that a distinctly American way of holiness begins to emerge from their lives and their work. These saints knew the cities where we live and work and found a heroic way to live and preach the Gospel in their own time. Captivating illustrations for each saint highlight the depth of their souls, and give readers an idea of the strong characteristics exemplified by these men and women.
