Overview

We all like to spend time with people who make us laugh. Those who always have a good word, a smile, and a happy perspective naturally draw us into their friendship. But what about the holy men and women we have been taught to revere for their closeness to God? Did they laugh and joke?

Wit and Wisdom of the Saints introduces us to our blessed heroes in a new way. A collection of witticisms from a full spectrum of saints, we are presented with sayings from the early martyrs to contemporary saints. From Bernard of Clairvaux to Bernadette of Lourdes, from John Bosco to Blessed Pope John XXIII--this book paints a warm and very human portrait of holy people who were also very happy.

A joyful presentation of the humorous side of sanctity, Wit and Wisdom of the Saints reminds the reader that God wants His saints to be happy. Get ready for a litany of laughter.
