1, and/or her Modern Saints:Their Lives and Faces Vol. 1 and 2. I wouldn't mind if it were only two or three, but . As usual this is a great Ann Ball books with pictures and stories of modern day saints, many of them not canonized. I wouldn't mind if it were only two or three, but many groups of martyrs listed here, are also found in her other books. I was hoping to read about holy young people I've NEVER read about before. And so I'm a little disappointed. I am however, STILL enjoying this book. I LIKE Ann Ball's writing.

Ann Ball’s book is a smorgasbord of biographical portraits of saints, blesseds, venerables, servants of God and those-in the very early stages-on the path to sainthood. If Catholic readers are familiar with the works of Joan Carroll Cruz, they will find this work of Ann Ball’s not just stimulating and inspiring but also very informative.

Maintaining the Catholic ideal in such a secularized and indifferent world can be quite laborious, to say the least, but the heroic individuals, as profiled in Ball’s excellent book, show that it is not impossible. The lives, as presented here, speak of ordinary people who were possessors of a universal faith, yet, who lived that Catholic faith in a vibrant, intellectual, proactive and supernatural way; they were career oriented, family oriented, and above all else, faith oriented. Included in this work of assorted biographies are the lives of two medical doctors-see Dr. Agnes McLaren who was the leading inspiration behind the Medical Mission Sisters, founded by Dr. Anna Maria Dengel and Saint Dr. Joseph Moscati, the holy doctor of Naples whose life was one of unlimited charity, Saints Louis and Zelie Martin, parents of St. Therese of Lisieux, Doctor of the Catholic Church, Saint Clelia Barbieri, who, at age 21, founded the Little Sisters of the Mother of Sorrows, the youngest founder of a religious order in the Church’s history. Also profiled is the wonderful story of the Venerable servant of God Carla Ronci, who wanted to be a nun but who, after serious discernment, realized that God was calling her to the lay state. However, it was a state within the Catholic secular institute of the Mater Misericordiae of Macerata, a lay apostolate where much good came from her skills and powerful faith. Lastly, there is the life of Montserrat Grases, a numerary member of Opus Dei, who, like Chiara “Luce” Badano of the Focolari Movement, became a shining example of holy faith while battling Ewing’s sarcoma. She was given the title Venerable in 2016 by Pope Francis. These are just some of the lives that resonated with me personally, but there are countless others from all walks of life who are lovingly and meticulously profiled in this book who can give you a momentary pause for thought: Why not me?

Books like these are necessary in this day-in-age where people of all backgrounds, ages and life experiences are endlessly asking, Where is God? How can I have a relationship with Him? What do I do? What’s it like to have Him in my life? How do I get His attention? Foremost, I say pray. Then I say listen. Then go from there. That is what these figures did in Ann Ball’s book. It’s all so remarkably simple and straightforward. But the joy will be endless.

If you want to read about the lives of holy men and women of God, but we're put off by the absence of photos, and you don't like the way artists have portrayed them as being so holy they become approachable....then Ann Ball is your author. I have THREE wonderful saints books by her, including the one above....and since Ann has chosen modern saints/beati there are lots of photos, and talks about their flaws and how they overcame them, not just in THIS book but in ALL the books I have by her. I also like that when she started writing, it was with the children in her CCD classes in mind! When she showed a photo of a saint, the kids in her class were surprised at how human the saints really were! They wondered why there were no roses, no lilies, no crucifixes, and learned that these are all symbols used to describe saints and what they did in their lives. As well intentioned as The Church is on symbols and saints, sometimes symbols can drive a wedge between us and the Saints. Actual photos have the opposite affect.They make them look REAL.

This book was recommended to me during Lenten season. I am deeply inspired that these fellow human beings gave their lives completely over to the Lord, and wanted only to do His will. Each of them were so purely selfless and found great joy by helping their fellow man, often times sacrificing their health or even their lives. These people were all modern day saints, many I had never heard of. The book is well written, truly fascinating and I highly recommend it.

This book is about people who lived a exemplary life. Many of them, now had been declared Blessed,like Father Jerzy Popieluszko, the Polish Priest of Solidarity. This book is aimed to Catholics, but I think even if you are not Catholic, you can learn so much about these exemplary lives.

This was a very eye opening book for the lives of our Saints. To truly appreciate the lives that they lived and the purpose behind their lives is very heartwarming and inspirational. I really enjoyed this book. Well written and inspiring. I do highly recommend educating ourselves on the sacrifices and devotions of the Saints. Hopefully we can all learn to imitate them.

Ms. Ball has written a great work detailing real life stories of people who gave their minds, bodies, and souls to a cause. This is a work that will inspire all people, Catholic and otherwise, who dedicate their lives to an ideal. I was especially pleased that she reserved a chapter for the inspirational life of Rogelio Gonzalez Corzo, code-named "Francisco," a young leader of the anti-Communist/anti-Castro underground in Cuba. This deeply religious man, an agricultural engineer only in his late twenties, a Catholic school graduate, and a leader of the Agupacion Catolica Universitaria, bravely took on the puppets of the Soviet Empire in his country. He never doubted his actions, and in his famous letter to his family just before hsi execution, he wrote, "Death is already knocking at my door, but as all my companions I have great peace of mind, because cost what it may it will show me the way to heaven and eternal happiness."
Ms. Ball is to be highly commended for her work. The others featured in the book, from a wide range of backgrounds and nations, were extrememly well selected. Not only does her choice of modern saints make the book attractive and inclusive, but truly speak to the transnational connection of Roman Cathilics around the world. A great book.

Ann Ball chooses an excellent selection of modern Saints, Blesseds, and Venerables in this book. Many of the accounts are very inspirational, with the lives of several martyrs, and other holy people who undertook extreme penance for their sorrow of sins. Excellent choice for those looking for inspirational stories about ways to achieve holiness and perfect union of your soul and Jesus.
