These stories are just a few examples of the many wonderful stories skillfully told in this book. \r\n\r\nThis would be a great book for dating couples and also already married couples.

The greatest lovers in the history of the world were the saints, those who sought to love God above everything. For those saints called to marriage, it was God’s love that led them to pursue their spouse in a most pure and holy courtship.

Courtship of the Saints reveals how twenty-five saintly couples, including Joachim and Anne, Joseph and Mary, Elizabeth of Hungary and Louis IV, Gianna and Pietro Molla, Louis and Zélie Martin, and others, met their spouses. From the most ordinary to the most extraordinary circumstances, one thing is clear: Divine Providence was at work. In these pages, you will also discover what courtship is according to Archbishop Fulton Sheen and Father Chad Ripperger.

In a world of lust, confusion, disappointment, and broken marriages, these saintly couples will inspire you to begin waiting and praying for a virtuous spouse. Still more, they offer wisdom and practical advice for those already married. Better than any romance novel, these stories will captivate your heart and reveal how the saints loved with passion and joy, enduring all trials with peace—for a blessed marriage is the fruit of a holy courtship.

Editorial Reviews

Gianna Emanuela Molla

Gianna Emanuela Molla (Last daughter of Saint Gianna and Pietro Molla)

“May my parents’ heroic example and infinite mutual love, so well described in Courtship of the Saints, be a source of hope, consolation, and encouragement for many souls, especially those in trial and suffering, and help us to grow in love and holiness. Saint Mom and holy Dad intercede for us!”

Fr. Chad Ripperger

Fr. Chad Ripperger (Exorcist)

"I think this book could help a lot of people."

Rev.T.G. Morrow

Rev. T. G. Morrow (Author of Christian Dating in A Godless World)

Courtship of the Saints is a breath of fresh air in our hyper-sexualized Western culture. These stories should inspire young Catholics, and all Christians to move in the direction of idealism in their courtships. For couples who want to live a holy courtship and marriage, this is a book that will encourage them par excellence.”

Leila Miller

Leila Miller (Author of Impossible Marriages Redeemed: They Didn’t End the Story in the Middle)

“Modern ideas and practices of dating and marriage have proved disastrous to countless souls. Catholics should steer clear of that wide, destructive path. Instead, let us turn to the saints and blesseds, and observe how they discerned, courted, and married. Only in understanding God’s plan and purpose for marriage can we hope to attain the holiness and glory that God intends.”

Leila Miller

Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, SV (Author of Jesus I Trust in You: A 30-Day Personal Retreat with the Litany of Trust)

"In a striking way, Courtship of the Saints highlights not only how God Himself ordains marriage as a way of holiness, but that through tremendous obstacles and unexpected struggles couples (are invited to) find the fidelity of His love all the more. A sure inspiration in a world searching for lasting love!"
