by Brian O'Neel

Overview
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.
