Saintly Reading: Books to Bring You Closer to Sainthood

This month, we have an exciting Saintly Reading exhibit: the men and women of Religious Communities.

Religious communities of men and women have been a vital part of the Catholic Church’s history for hundreds of years.  The contributions of their members have impacted the Church’s growth as these dedicated men and women served the people of God in countless ways.  In a famous quote, Pope Francis, who is himself a member of the Jesuit community said, “Religious should be men and women who wake up the world.”  This collection of books tells the stories of people who have and are doing just that!
