ENCOUNTERS WITH HOLINESS
The last century produced an extraordinarily large number of saints. Some of them have already been proposed for canonization, others have not. In this book Father Catoir presents a number of personal encounters and “Christopher Close-up” interviews that he had over the course of the last quarter century with some of the saints who are now up for canonization, as well as with a few others who will probably never be canonized, though all of them are among the holiest people of the twentieth century. In this work you will find fascinating insights into the lives and motivations behind the accomplishments of such stellar figures as: Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Dorothy Day, Leon-Josef Cardinal Suenens, John Cardinal O’Connor, Archbishop Joseph Raya, Msgr. John Tracy Ellis, Fathers James Keller, Harvey Steele, Walter Ciszek, and Bernard Häring, Mr. Fred Rogers and Mother Angelica.
