Publisher's Summary

Fr. Aloysiys Roche (1886-1968) answers that question with wit and wonder in this refreshing, rollicking account of outstanding saintly achievements across the centuries. These stories will inspire you to follow the saints' examples as you discover how they:


Lived fascinating lives that make legends seem dull by comparison
Practiced heroic selfness, detachment, self-denial, and generosity
Displayed startling energy and stamina in fulfilling their missions
Transformed society through ways of thinking far ahead of their time
Left their imprint on the world's geography, languages, and cultures

This new, definitive edition of Fr. Roche's modern classic features a new Foreword about the author's life by Paul Thigpen.
