This small book by Ghezzi has a short summary of true stories of lives of a few Saints. Or as he wrote, 'Touched by the Supernatural.' This small inspirational book covers the highlights of about twenty Saints. All with one thing in common, a great love and devotion to the cross of Christ and love for there fellow man.

It was interesting to read that many of the saints that performed miracles tried to hide the fact. One even asked God to take away their power to heal, for it was leaving not enough time to pray. These stories show us just how human these saints are. They are humorous, tender, fiery and at times at times exasperated. Anyone we have ever met could be a saint with the a deep enough devotion and love for Christ and others.

The back of the book has a small list of Saints and their Feast Days. And a very small glossary. ( )
