This is the compelling and inspirational true story of a medical doctor who lived in the 20th century and is now a canonized saint. Giuseppe Moscati, physician, medical researcher, and teacher in Naples, Italy, came from an aristocratic family and devoted his medical career to serving the poor. He was also a medical school professor, and a pioneer in the field of biochemistry whose research led to the discovery of insulin as a cure for diabetes. Moscati regarded his medical practice as a lay apostolate, a ministry to his suffering fellowmen. Before examining a patient or engaging in research he would place himself in the presence of God. Moscati treated poor patients free of charge, and would often send them home with an envelope containing a prescription and a 50-lire note. He could have pursued a brilliant academic career, taken a professorial chair and devoted more time to research, but he preferred to continue working with his beloved patients and to train dedicated interns. To his many medical students he taught by the witness of his life to practice their profession in a spirit of service, because "suffering should be treated not as just pain of the body, but as the cry of a soul, to whom another brother, the doctor, runs to with the ardent love of charity . . . They are the faces of Jesus Christ, and the Gospel precept urges us to love them as ourselves." "This man whom we will invoke as a saint of the universal Church appears to us as a concrete realization of the ideal of the Christian layman. Giuseppe Moscati, head physician of a hospital, a renowned researcher, a university instructor of human physiology and chemistry, performed his many and various tasks with all the commitment and seriousness that the practice of these delicate lay professions requires." - Pope John Paul II, Homily at the Canonization of Giuseppe Moscati

The lives of the saints are either too grisly for little kids or too saccharine for older ones. But this collection appeals to both groups with a combination of gentle humor and frankness – battle-tested at the author's weekly chapel services at the school where she teaches. It's organized into two full school years, with each saint's story falling on or near his or her special day so that each story can be a springboard to a creative seasonal teaching unit or small festival. Saints represent a wide variety of ethnic and geographic backgrounds.

In diesem autobiografischen Interviewbuch gibt Robert Kardinal Sarah, einer der prominentesten und freimütigsten katholischen Kardinäle, Zeugnis von seinem Glauben und kommentiert viele aktuelle Themen. Das meistdiskutierte und wichtigste katholische Buch des Jahres 2015! Aus dem Vorwort von Erzbischof Georg Gänswein: "Es ist die Radikalität des Evangeliums, die dieses Buch inspiriert, die Radikalität, die schon viele Glaubenszeugen bewegt und angetrieben hat, die Radikalität einer unausweichlichen Entscheidung, vor der letzlich jeder einzelne Mensch steht, wenn er früher oder später in seinem Leben, den Ruf Christi hört, ihn ernst nimmt, ihm nicht länger ausweichen will und endlich darauf antworten muss. Dann versteht er, dass seine ganze menschliche Existenz auf diese eine Frage zuläuft: Gott oder nichts!"
