About the Book

Pope John Paul II has canonized more than 1,700 saints during his pontificate, leading some to criticize him as a "saint-making machine." Yet, perhaps John Paul realizes something that many of us have forgotten – not only that our own goal should be sainthood, but also that we may require the inspiration of these Christian faithful to live out our own faith in the 21st century.

In this collection of stories, readers will be introduced to a variety of familiar and unfamiliar saints canonized during the Great Jubilee Year 2000. They include inspiring stories from nearly every continent, including Francisco and Jacinta Marto of Fatima, 120 Chinese Martyrs, Sister Faustina Kowalska, Sister Katharine Drexel, 25 Mexican Martyrs and many more – 164 in all. They include remarkable stories of children and adults, men and women, religious and lay people striving to live in holiness.
