Each story is different.
Each ending is the same.
Single, married, widowed, separated, abandoned, divorced…
Childless, an unwed mother, a parent of many children, a stepmother…
Born into high society, a member of the middle class, destitute…
From Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, the Americas.
None of the accounts in Saintly Women of Modern Times is a fairy tale, but each woman ended up finding a Prince who loved her completely, a Prince who had been calling to her even as she had been searching for Him.
Each of these twentieth-century laywomen fell deeply in love with Christ, the Prince of Peace, and that made all the difference in the world – a difference in this world, and the next.
Here are the women who prove that – no matter the circumstances – a life of heroic virtue is possible. A life that centers on Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, a life of sanctity and of service to others.
