Product Description

Italian Carmelite Antonio-Maria Sicari’s vibrant biographies of saints—from Augustine to Catherine of Siena to Faustina Kowalska—have been read across Europe for decades. In How Saints Die, his first collection to be translated into English, Sicari turns to the most difficult element of saints’ lives: the hour of death.

What he uncovers in this darkest moment, however, is not desolation, but inexplicable joy. “I have recounted the death of many saints,” he writes, “but all of them have confirmed for me the truth of this ancient Christian intuition: in the death of a saint, it is death that dies!”

With in-depth research and an incisive sense of storytelling, Sicari brings before our eyes the gracious last hours of one hundred men and women, lovers and martyrs, thinkers and laborers, ancients and moderns, old men and teenagers, including Kateri Tekakwitha, Maximilian Kolbe, Mother Teresa, Thomas Aquinas, Josephine Bakhita, Jérôme Lejeune, Clare of Assisi, and many more. In each, a new color of the divine light shines through.

Those seeking insight into the mystery of death and suffering will find in this book not only wisdom, but rich and realistic consolation. Divided into brief, readable chapters organized by theme, the collection offers at every bend another finegrained snapshot of a Christian fully alive—names both familiar and unfamiliar, but all of them companions for the road. Excellent for regular spiritual reading, or as a book of daily meditations, one saint per day.
