Two New Saints' Biographies

This Sunday, October 11th, Pope Benedict will canonize two new saints: Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, and Fr. Damien, the famous leper-priest of Molokai. Both of these persons lived heroic, selfless lives that serve as models of inspiration and holiness for others.

We at Pauline Books & Media are very pleased to announce that we have two new publications available on these saints.
Song of Silence: The Journey of St. Jeanne Jugan, details the incredible ordeal the saint underwent in establishing her community--including repeated betrayals and rejection (to the point that she was not recognized as the foundress of her own Order until after her death). Still, she clung to faith and transformed her trials into a path toward holiness. St. Damien de Veuster, Missionary of Molokai is a 32-page booklet that includes a brief biography and novena prayers to the extraordinary priest who gave his life for the lepers of Hawaii.

Stop by the Center today to learn more about these two remarkable individuals who are the newest canonized saints of the Church.
