Overview

Countless saints have been priests or religious, living out lives of penance and sacrifice for the good of the Church. But many Catholics don't realize that married couples are called to holiness as well. Fr. Holbock's tells the inspiring stories of over 200 married saints and blessed from the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph to Margaret of Scotland, King Louis of France, Thomas More, and modern examples like Gianna Molla and Louis and Zelie Martin, parents of St. Therese of Lisieux. The example of these holy men and women is essential to living a truly CAtholic married life. Important Church documents and scripture passages ar also included to further guide and enlighten the reader.
