Voices of the Saints

If you want to do something well, you look to see how others have already done it well. If I want to be a great baseball player, I see what Albert Pujols and Derek Jeter do and I try to emulate that. The same is true in the spiritual life: if you want to be holy, look and see how others before you have become holy. This is why I love reading lives of the saints, and why I encourage my children to do so as well. Nothing, other than the Bible, can be more profitable reading than discovering the many and varied ways in which God has raised up saints in different cultures and times.
Which is why I’m excited by the book “Voices of the Saints: A 365-Day Journey With Our Spiritual Companions ” by Bert Ghezzi (full disclosure: Bert is my editor at Our Sunday Visitor). This video explains the project in a bit more detail:
There are more videos explaining the book here .
