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.
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.
