Lessons from the lives of the saints goes through the Church's liturgical calendar. Each day contains a concise biography of all Catholic saints. Fr. Esper provides a brief overview of each saint's life and explains important lessons we can draw from his or her example. This book is a fantastic resource for our daily spiritual reading and meditation - a helpful guide that teaches us how to apply the saints' secrets of holiness to our own daily life.
Important life lessons that we can learn from the saints:
How true joy comes not from earthly status, but from following Christ.
How God answers our prayers, but often in a way demanding our patience.
How, through charity and prayer, impossible situations can be transformed and family members converted.
How Christians may be called upon to endure great sufferings - but if so, God will always sustain us.
