Product Description


What is “the splendor of the saints”?

Fr. Aloysius Roche (1886–1968) answers that question with wit and wonder in this refreshing, rollicking account of outstanding saintly achievements across the centuries. These stories will inspire you to follow the saints’ example as you discover how they:
lived fascinating lives that make legends seem dull by comparison
practiced heroic selflessness, detachment, self-denial, and generosity
displayed startling energy and stamina in fulfilling their missions
transformed society through ways of thinking far ahead of their time
left their imprint on the world’s geography, languages, and cultures.

This new, definitive edition of Fr. Roche’s modern classic features a new Foreword about the author’s life by Paul Thigpen. It also features 133 new bibliographic and explanatory footnotes; comprehensive Scripture citations; and an updated style and vocabulary to make it accessible to the contemporary reader.

We must never be “reconciled to our own mediocrity,” Fr. Roche insists. Let the high heroism portrayed in Splendor of the Saints stir you “to scale the heights and to get your head among the stars.”
