  • In his book, Travelers along the Way, The Men and Women Who Shaped My Life, Father Benedict J. Groeschel recounted stories of earthly personalities he has met, and the ways in which they have influenced him. Now the celebrated lecturer and retreat master addresses another dimension to this topic by introducing the heavenly companions he has come to know. The Saints in My Life encourages us to see the Communion of Saints as a spiritual extended family. As members of the Mystical Body of Christ they should be as present to us as anyone we meet on the street. By becoming familiar with the saints stories, you will discover lives that resonate with your own, building the foundation for a personal relationship with them. Father Groeschel reveals his favorite saints and his process for befriending the saints by describing:


    ---His first encounter with the saint.


    ---His friendship with and devotion to the saint.


    ---The way the saint has influenced him and affected his life.


    Helpful sidebars in each chapter include a brief sketch of the life and significance of the saint; prayers Father Groeschel addresses to the saint; an excerpt from the writing of the saint or one of the saints contemporaries; and, a review of a recommended book by or about the saint.
