Are Saints Really Like Us?

Dawn Marie Beutner's vast new work reveals hidden lives of the saints

SAN FRANCISCO, June 27, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- The great Communion of Saints is a huge part of the lives of Catholics, but many don't know that there are saints from every background, ethnicity, vocation, country and demographic just waiting to be discovered to help people on Earth who want to imitate holiness and get to heaven. THE LEAVEN OF THE SAINTS: BRINGING CHRIST INTO A FALLEN WORLD (Ignatius Press), by Dawn Marie Beutner, seeks to connect those saints to Catholics searching for intercessors and real, holy people to whom they are able to relate.

Beutner entered the Catholic Church as a young adult and worked as an engineer before becoming a technical writer. She lives with her husband and two children in northern Virginia, where she leads various parish groups that promote life issues, serve the needy and learn about the Bible and the Catholic faith.

The saints have come from every background, people and era. They have been rich and poor, healthy and sick, single and married, members of the clergy and of the laity. THE LEAVEN OF THE SAINTS groups them according to the kind of Christian witness they have given the world — as martyrs, Fathers and Doctors of the Church, priests and religious, popes and bishops, national heroes, founders of religious orders, married persons and more.

Every reader will find at least one saint within the pages of THE LEAVEN OF THE SAINTS with whom they can relate in some way and be inspired to follow Christ more closely because of their example.

"Amidst the demands of life and the experience of our own weaknesses, great sanctity can seem remote, even impossible to many people," said Fr. Sebastian White, O.P., Editor-in-Chief of Magnificat. "Fortunately, Dawn Beutner has written a book which reminds us daily that it is God who makes saints through his grace and love. And if God has already transformed so many witnesses of his Son's redemptive love in the world, can't he do the same for us?"
