Item Description...
Do you know which saint. . . Suffered the death of a child? Divorced and remarried without an annulment? Lived with a lover? Had an illegitimate child? Was a compulsive gambler? Suffered from mental illness? Was an alcoholic? Contemplated suicide? Was betrayed by a friend? Ordinary Suffering Of Extraordinary Saints reveals these and dozens of other heart-touching stories behind the popular biographies of the saints. Here you'll find real men and women facing very real sufferings: addiction, illness, grief, divorce, disability, unemployment, loneliness, poverty, and discrimination. By using the saints' own words as often as possible, Vincent J. O'Malley, C.M., discloses the seldom-discussed temptations, failures, and sorrows of more than one hundred saints. These extraordinary men and women--from Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Maximilian Kolbe to Clare of Assisi, Elizbeth Ann Seton, and Therese of Lisieux--became saints despite the suffering in their lives. By their response to sorrow and suffering, they grew profoundly more human and more Christ-like. Let their stories heal the wounds in your life and encourage you to allow God's love to transform your suffering into the eternal triumph of the saints.

Publishers Description
They ran away from home, contemplated suicide, kept strings of lovers, got mugged, went to jail -- and they were all saints. This remarkably entertaining and meticulously researched book shows how the saints had all the problems we have -- and still overcame them.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Newsflash: Saints are Human Beings!  Sep 2, 2007
It may often be the temptation to think of saints as rareified, barely human beings, and of sanctity as well beyond our grasp. However this book helps us to recall that exactly the opposite is true. Saints are normal human beings who lived a wide array of lives as best they could, some of their stories involve great conversions, but for all of them sanctity was found in followign Christ in everything they did whether it be being a heroic warrior, a monk, a housewife, or a college student. The stories in this book thus all serve as mirrors for our lives, to help us see where we are making excuses to keep from living better and giving more fully of ourselves.
Inspirational and helpful  Jun 1, 2000
When most people think of saints, they think of perfect people. This book shows you the human side of holy people and the different ways in which they suffered. It's inspirational, but it's also a great reference book. The profiles of the saints are concise with great quotes from original sources. Saints are categorized according to different types of trials that they faces, i.e. sickness, family problems, problems in dealing with other people. It's a good book for your own use or to give to someone who is going through a difficult time.
