A Dinner Party with the Saints

The People Behind the Halos


Welcome to a dinner party in heaven. With a charming blend of imagination and historical detail, the bestselling author of 365 Saints invites you to get to know the saints in food and fellowship. Hinting at one of the traditional images of heaven, the Banquet or Marriage Feast of the Lamb (Revelation 9:9), the author gathers fourteen holy souls, enabling you to better understand what they were like on earth. Combining fictional narrative, fascinating biographies, and mouth-watering dinner party recipes, the book offers a resource for families and other groups to celebrate saints spanning the history of the Church, and to better understand the “people behind the halos.”

Lessons from the Saints


The saints in this book, even though they come from a variety of eras and cultures, are men and women who can teach us how to live with the inevitable pain that comes from being human as well as how to cope with some of the more common types of suffering. While we all will experience some pain on our life journeys, becoming entrenched in suffering is not honoring God and it is not living abundantly. So my hope for you is that as you read how the saints used their suffering, you will discover, not just words of spiritual consolation, but genuine, practical measures that you can use in your daily life in order to eliminate unnecessary pain and to claim the abundant life God has promised each one of us.

Asking God for the Gifts He Wants to Give You


As a Christian, I believe that God always answers our prayers, but we don’t always get the answers we want. I have discovered a prayer that asks God for gifts that he wants to give us – and our Lord’s answers will delight us! The prayer, written by the beloved seventeenth-century St. Alphonsus Liguori, asks God for five graces: forgiveness; wisdom; a share in divine love; confidence in the merits of Jesus and the intercession of Mary; and perseverance. I try to expand our understanding of each of these graces, by explaining their meaning with teaching and Scripture and providing illustrations of their power with personal testimony and stories. I hope that these graces will bring you comfort and peace during those times when it seems that God isn’t hearing or answering your prayers.

Simplify Your Life


“He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.” – Lao Tzu
The desire to simplify is timeless. The true secret to simplicity has nothing to do with process and everything to do with peace of mind.

Dorothy Day

Meet Dorothy Day

Champion of the Poor


Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker movement, once declared: “Don’t call me a saint. I don’t want to be dismissed that easily.” Nevertheless, the cause for her canonization began in 2000, and her prophetic example remains a provocative challenge to the status quo that cannot be easily dismissed. This intriguing biography of the highly controversial journalist and social activist draws from her voluminous writings and the testimony of people who knew her well. It explores the connections between Day’s formidable public achievements and her private life of prayer, Scripture study, and devotion to the Sacraments. The result is a stirring portrait of a champion of justice for the poor and oppressed who worked tirelessly to awaken the conscience of a nation.

Reviews: Facing Adversity With Grace


“In this beautiful new book, readers will learn lessons about dealing with almost every type of human difficulty. The saints faced human problems because they were human beings.
