Saintly Women of Modern Times
By Joan Carroll Cruz. Leave it to Joan to find 75 women from the past one hundred years that are on the road to sainthood. (St. Gianna is the only one of the 75 who has made it.) They are from diverse backgrounds, which proves it is indeed possible to bloom where you are planted. With each story, my excuses for not living the life of a saint evaporated a little more; yet the yearning to follow in their footsteps grew. Softcover, 250 pages.
