 Our Description


Ivan Innerst


In His saints, God is manifest as goodness, power and truth. The variety of saints reflects the infinite beauty and love of the God whose image they most perfectly reflect.

This collection of portraits of the lives of twelve saints, many less well-known, focuses on how each of these particular men and women have a specific message that is significant for those living in our challenging times.

Though they lived in other times, these twelve saints faced problems similar in many ways to those of our present day. Among the twelve featured here are Paschal Baylon, saint of the Eucharist; Margaret Clitherow, a mother and martyr; Isidore, a farmer; Margaret of Castello, an outcast; Gemma Galgani, a lay stigmatist; Robert Southwell, a poet, and six more.

Ivan Innerst presents a true and lifelike picture of each saint whose life has more inspiration to offer today's Christian than has previously been widely known. Each saint has something to share on a range of topical questions for today to help us better live the Gospel message.

Ivan Innerst, a convert to Catholicism, worked as a journalist and served on the Journalism and English faculties of four universities. He is the author of a novella, short stories, and religious commentary in national Catholic periodicals. He lives in New Mexico.

St. Gemma Galgani

St. Gemma Galgani Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 04/11
Tridentine Calendar - 04/11

Patron Of: Apothecaries, Druggists, Loss of Parents, Pharmacists, Temptation

    Daughter of a poor pharmacist; mother died when she was seven, her father when she was eighteen, and she took care of her seven brothers and sisters. Laywoman. Cured in her 20's of spinal tuberculosis by prayer to Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rejected by the orders to which she applied who would not believe her cure, she became a Passionist tertiary. Stigmatist, receiving the wounds on her hands and feet each Thursday evening through Friday afternoon starting in June 1899 and continuing into 1901. Visionary; she saw her guardian angel daily, and visits from the devil who tempted her to spit on the cross and break a rosary. Her canonization faced stiff opposition by those who either disbelieved or wished to avoid attention to her visions and stigmata.

    12 March 1878 at Borgo Nuovo di Camigliano, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

    11 April 1903 (Holy Saturday) of tuberculosis

    1933 by Pope Pius XI
