Parents of the Saints
The Hidden Heroes Behind Our Favorite Saints
by Patrick O’Hearn
Coming June 2021 from TAN Books !
About Parents of the Saints
Discover the hidden heroes behind Sts. Faustina, Giana Molla, Josemaría Escrivá, Pope John Paul II, Maximilian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Thérèse, and countless others. Learn how over 100 parents formed their children into great saints by way of their virtuous lives, namely their seven hallmarks: sacramental life, surrender, sacrificial love, suffering, simplicity, solitude, and the sacredness of life. Each chapter of this book examines a particular hallmark in depth.
This 300-plus page book is not your typical biography of the saints nor does it sugar coat these holy lives as do many saints books. Rather, the Parents of the Saints is filled with fascinating stories that will make you laugh, cry, and above all, inspire you to raise up saints. From great saints like John of the Cross to lesser known blesseds like Chiara Badano, you will learn how these holy parents formed their children in the school of virtue, which is the domestic classroom.
