Modern Heroes of the Church

by Leo Knowles

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations

Let gifted storyteller Leo Knowles introduce you to an amazing array of twentieth-century Catholics who will teach you the "secrets of their success." Discover the keys that unlocked their hearts and minds and souls, freeing them to become the men and women God created them to be. The same keys can help you become the person God created you to be. In an age when holiness often seems not only unrealistic but truly impossible, these inspiring, encouraging, and entertaining biographies prove that just isn't so. Each life -- each story -- is a testimony to God's love, mercy, and compassion (and, when needed, patience!) for every human being. In a collection like no other, Modern Heroes of the Church presents saints, blesseds, and "ordinary folks" who -- by the grace of God -- came to lead extraordinary lives. They are ordained, professed Religious, single, and married. They are American, Canadian, Irish, English, African, Salvadoran, and more! They are world traveler, lifelong invalid, military hero, conscientious objector, cloistered genius, and simple gatekeeper. They are Modern Heroes of the Church. Book jacket.… (more)
