About this title

Synopsis:

God offers every human being the gift of himself, promising to come and make his home in the hearts of all who love and obey him. Saints respond to this gift by giving their hearts wholeheartedly to God. In The Heart of a Saint, best-selling Catholic author Bert Ghezzi portrays ten heroes of the faith whose lives demonstrate how we can grow closer to God as we give our hearts to him. From Thérèse of Lisieux and Francis of Assisi to Dorothy Day and Pope John Paul II, the author paints a portrait of men and women taking on the heart of God in prayer, service, justice, and love of neighbor. Each chapter ends with suggestions for reflection, prayer, and action for growing in the particular spiritual quality exhibited by each saint. Ghezzi's engaging style as he tells these stories is both refreshing and inspirational.

From Publishers Weekly:

According to popular speaker and author Ghezzi, a saint is a woman or man who has a heart set on loving God above all. This attribute does not make these people superhuman, but it does make them good spiritual mentors for those who want to grow in holiness. Ghezzi does not draw solely from the wisdom of the usual suspects. Aelred of Rievaulx, Angela Merici and Jane de Chantal are more obscure, but no less holy, people who embraced a vocation to live for others in a variety of ways. Others mentioned include those not yet officially canonized as Catholic saints, such as Dorothy Day, and popes Paul VI and John Paul II. Ghezzi claims that each of these men and women can teach important virtues, including mercy, kindness, service and respect for the poor. Each chapter ends with a section called Think, Pray, and Act in which the author provides excellent points for reflection and action. By practicing these three disciplines, Ghezzi says, we can emulate the saints in understanding and responding to God's call. An excellent primer to the lives of these saints, this text would also be useful as a guide and discussion-starter for small church community groups. (Sept.)
