Saints for the Journey


John Murray

Saints for the Journey is an illuminating read for those curious about both well-known and obscure followers of the gospel. It is an insightful look at the everyday acts of courageous people who upheld the values and principles of the Church, often without being aware they were doing so.

Here you will read about Ève Lavallière, a once-famous French actress, who relinquished the material trappings of her success in pursuit of a spiritually fulfilling life; Pino Puglisi, a parish priest, who bravely stood up to the Italian mafia and paid the ultimate price.

John Murray recounts the stories of each of these exceptional people in a sympathetic and accessible style, which helps to portray the unique humanity of each individual.
