Saints are real people who have encountered the same setbacks, struggles, and failures that confront each of us. Join esteemed Church historian Father John Hughes to learn more about the very real lives of your favorite saints.
Along the way, you will learn the answers to questions such as Why do we have saints? Who are the saints and how does one become a saint? Why are so many of the saints former priests, nuns, or monks? and Why are so few saints married? Gain clarity and insight into an area of common misconception: what it really means to pray to the saints.
In this fascinating series, the saints you’ll meet include a woman who didn't discover her true vocation until she was past sixty, a man who lived for years with a concubine and fathered an illegitimate son, a religious teacher and reformer who was repeatedly charged with heresy, three women who were wives and mothers before they became Sisters, and many more.
The words of these great men and women may move you, but their actions will absolutely take your breath away. Join Fr. Hughes as he fondly recalls the memories of some of our greatest Saints, including the pope who, as he lay dying, told his priest-secretary: “We never stopped to throw back the stones they cast at us."
