Melanie Rigney Shares Brotherhood of Saints
They were apostles, popes, and priests... and they were also husbands, fathers, lawyers, hermits, and men who tried to get away from it all by living on raised ten-foot-square platforms. Learn more about eight male "obscure" saints from Melanie Rigney, author of the newly released page-a-day Brotherhood of Saints devotional. MEG Gilroy, wine and chocolate connoisseur, provides commentary and pairings!
In this page-a-day book for men, Melanie Rigney gives us a panoply of widely known and more obscure saints who show the way to be better disciples of Christ. They offer compelling examples of how to meet the challenges of daily life, be strengthened in your faith, and become the man God created you to be.
While no such book would be complete without entries on Peter, Paul, the Francises, Anthony of Padua, Augustine and the other Doctors of the Church, Ignatius of Loyola, Benedict, John, John Paul, and so on, it will also include many of the men canonized in the past fifty years, including Oscar Romero, Louis Martin, Francisco Marto, Jos Gabriel del Rosario Brochero, Junipero Serra, and the martyrs of Otranto, Natal, Korea, and the Spanish Civil War.
