St. Augustine is here, along with St. Elisabeth Ann Seton, St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Francis de Sales. But you’ll also meet lesser-known saints, including St. Maria de la Cabeza, St. Joaquina, and St. Theophan the Recluse.
Indeed, here you’ll encounter over 400 saints who, by their example and intercession, will help you resist temptations, resolve problems, and bear with grace, good cheer, and Christian hope the ones you can’t break free of.
Fr. Joseph Esper, author of the popular companion volume, Saintly Solutions, here considers over thirty of life's common problems, showing you how the saints dealt with each of them and grew holier as they did so. Better yet, he explains how you can, too.
In each chapter, Fr. Esper includes for reflection thought-provoking quotes from saints, a practical section entitled “Something you might try,” and solid suggestions for further reading. That makes More Saintly Solutions immensely valuable for everyone who struggles with life’s common problems and who wants to face them with the unquenchable joy of the saints!
