 Our Description

A beautiful book of meditations on various Christian virtues or charisms as reflected in the lives of nine holy Dominican men and women. Manifesting the special grace and spirit given to St. Dominic, these outstanding lives are shining examples for modern Christians on how to make the Gospel teaching incarnate in today's world. Saints portrayed include Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, Martin de Porres, Fra Angelico, Peter of Verona, Catherine de Ricci and others. Charisms highlighted by each life include prayer, joy, poverty, study, friendship, art, and more.

The lives of the saints occupy a special place in the history and spirituality of the Catholic Church. The men and women in this book form a comprehensive image of one of the most significant movements in the history of Western Christianity. The Dominican order, whose particular charism emphasizes the sanctification of the intellect and the importance that sacred truth holds in the life of the Christian believer.


"A wonderful selection of outstanding men and women whose lives and virtues can still serve as guideposts for contemporary Christians."
- Jordan Aumann, O.P., Author of Christian Spirituality in the Catholic Tradition

"We need to learn from our brothers and sisters some of their courage and passion. It gives me great pleasure to present Father Guy Bedouelle's collection of essays and original sources, which so beautifully capture the life and spirit of the Dominican Family."
- Timothy Radcliffe, O.P. Master General of the Dominican Order
