Overview

Single, married, widowed, separated, abandoned, divorced... Childless, an unwed mother, a parent of many children, a stepmother... Born into high society, a member of the middle class, destitute... From Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, the Americas. None of the accounts in Saintly Women of Modern Times is a fairy tale, but each woman ended up finding a Prince who loved her completely, a Prince who had been calling to her even as she had been searching for Him. Each of these twentieth-century laywomen fell deeply in love with Christ, the Prince of Peace, and that made all the difference in the world -- the difference in this world, and the next. Pick a chapter -- any chapter -- and you'll want to read another and another and another. Here are the women who prove that -- no matter the circumstances -- a life of heroic virtue is possible. A life that centers on Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, a life of sanctity and of service to others.
