39 Holy UnknownsBook - 2012
St. Hemma of Gurk? St. Deicolus? These saints are not household names, but maybe they should be. Although the Church recognizes thousands of saints, a relatively small number of them are well known to most Catholics. This book introduces the reader to a group of diverse saints--men and women, single and married, from all corners of the world--whose exploits have been lost to most of us. Each story highlights an aspect of that saint's life that can be applied to today's circumstances. The book contains a short biography of each saint, a section on why that saint merits our attention and devotion today, and a short prayer.
