The Saints in My Life
By Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R. You are cordially invited to a special gathering with Fr. Benedict Groeschel and the saintly companions he had invited in his life. Meet St. Ignatius of Antioch, a Father of the Church, who encouraged Christians to persist in their faith as he was escorted to his death in the Roman arena. St. Monica will inspire you to persevere in prayer for family members as she did for her husband and son. St. Teresa of Avila will give you hope as you discover her twenty year struggle with mental prayer. These three, saints along with sixteen others, make up Fr. Groeschel's heavenly circle of friends. Fr. Groeschel shares with you his first encounter with each saint, a brief sketch of his or her life, and the impact that saint had on him. Saints are the friends who will stand by you and encourage you in your journey. Perhaps one or two of Fr. Groeschel's dear friends will become your friend also! Softcover, 201 pages.
