By Joan Carroll Cruz
In Lay Saints: Ascetics and Penitents, Joan Carroll Cruz guides you through the lives of fifty-eight lay men and women who achieved the heights of sanctity. These inspiring biographies present saints who seemed destined for sainthood, as well as those who led sinful lives prior to a conversion of heart. Both those who have just begun their spiritual journey and those well advanced on the road to perfection will find a saint to help them take that next step closer to God.
Through their examples, these saints will inspire ever-greater acts of charity and remind sinners that there is yet hope for salvation.
