In 1435, St. Francis of Paola was busy overseeing the construction of his first monastery, when tragedy struck-a laborer was crushed to death. St. Francis knelt over the man's body, touching him with herbs. The man stood and returned to work unharmed. This miracle and many others are the focus of Mystics & Miracles. Through twenty-four intimate biographies, author Bert Ghezzi introduces us to the diverse personalities and extraordinary lives of the men and women known as mystics. Mystics are ordinary people who have been touched by God and introduced to the mysteries of Christ's death and resurrection. They are true wonder-workers who fulfill Jesus' prediction that his apostles would perform greater works than he. From visions and healings to prophesies and miracles, mystics are a direct connection between the human and the divine. Ghezzi's stories touch us by revealing this humanity and making the mystics real.
