  • Pope John Paul II canonized or beatified such a staggering number of people, well over fifteen hundred, that many of them remain as obscure after receiving their new title as they were before. If you have never heard of Bartolo Longo, the former satanic priest, you are not alone. And what about Enrico Rebuschini, who battled depression? Or the happily married Luigi and Maria Beltrame-Quattrocchi?

    In lively detail, Brian ONeel tells the stories of these and more, a number of who are our near-contemporaries and coped with such horrors as Nazism (Jakob Gapp, Maria Restituta Kafka), slavery (Josephine Bakhita) or the Spanish Civil War (Vincente David Vilar).

    Amazing stories of ordinary human beings who demonstrate that holiness is not another word for boring, but a defining characteristic of those who threw themselves wholeheartedly into the adventure of life.

    Clearly written, well researched, and highly relevant. These men and women have shaped our sociopoliticall world (Blessed Emperor Karl I), our attitude to oppression (Blessed Franz Jagerstatter), our response to beauty (Blessed Claudio Granzotto), our commitment to family (Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin), and our call to defend life itself (Saint Gianna Beretta Molla). A delightful and uplifting tribute to the heroism of faith.

    -Rev. Bernard J. OConnor, Official, Vatican Congregation for the Eastern Churches

    "Clear and powerful stories. Ill be recommending this book to youth and campus ministers around the country."

    -Christopher Stefanick, Director of Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry for the Archdiocese of Denver
