Saints for Our Times New Novenas and Prayers
By Barry Michaels
The novenas featured in this collection will breathe new life into our devotion to the saints. Each raised up as a model of holiness by John Paul II, these saints come from a variety of different backgrounds ?rich and poor, single, married, and religious, men and women, of various ethnicities, from recent years and years past? yet all of their journeys will resonate with contemporary needs and issues.
