Saints for the Family

9.95

by John Murray

Best-selling author, Fr John Murray, introduces us to a selection of saints for the family , to mark the World Meeting of Families which takes place in Dublin in August 2018.

Among those included are  Biblical figures like Joseph husband of Mary as well as  Elizabeth and Zechariah. There are classical saints too such as Bernadette of Lourdes. The author shows also that many who came from families experienced difficulties and trauma – people like Laura Vicuna who suffered abuse and  Antonia Brenner who had two failed marriages before befriending prisoners in a maximum security complex. There too is Sr Ignatia who helped in the founding of the AA organisation and Bartolo Longo who at one time was a Satanist priest but became in time a great devotee of the rosary.
