The greatest legacy any parent can bestow upon the Church is to raise a saint. In these pages, you will discover some of the holiest parents who ever lived and how they raised their children to become saints through seven hallmarks: sacramental life, surrender, sacrificial love, suffering,simplicity, solitude, and sacredness of life. Each chapter of this book examines a particular hallmark in depth.
With over one hundred couples featured, including the parents of Saints Teresa of Ávila, John Vianney, Faustina, Josemaría Escrivá, Pope John Paul II, Maximillian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Thérèse of Lisieux, and countless others, Parents of the Saints reveals some of the most forgotten yet influential souls in the history of the Church. Through the joys and sorrows of life, these parents offered their children the greatest gift—passing on the Faith through a virtuous example.
Compared to eternity, parents have only a short window to form their children into heroic men and women. When we stand before Almighty God on the day of our judgment, we will be accountable for the way we raised our children. This book is filled with inspiring and authentic stories of parents, who endured many trials and persevered in God’s grace. Every parent should read Parents of the Saints to uncover the wisdom and zeal necessary to guide their children to heaven.
