Parents of the Saints: The Hidden Heroes Behind Our Favorite Saints

As parents, helping our children get to Heaven is of the utmost importance. The only other alternative is Hell, and both destinations are for eternity.

As we look back through history and study the lives of the Saints, it is oftentimes easy to forget the role that the parents of these holy men and women played in their formation and ultimate salvation.

In this book, discover the hidden heroes behind Sts. Faustina, Giana Molla, Josemaría Escrivá, Pope John Paul II, Maximilian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Thérèse, and countless others. Learn how over 100 parents formed their children into great Saints by way of their virtuous lives.

There are seven hallmarks we can associate with the success of these saintly parents:

• Sacramental Life

• Surrender

• Sacrificial love

• Suffering

• Simplicity

• Solitude

• Sacredness of Life

Each chapter of this book examines a particular hallmark in depth. If we want our children to get to Heaven, there are few examples we should pay more attention to than the ones put forth here. The time is now to fulfill our vocations as parents and lead our children down the straight and narrow path to salvation.
