A Cross-reference of Sainted Relationship

Author: Vincent J. O'Malley, C.M.
Copyright: 1995
First Printed: 05-17-1995

We are, largely, who we are because of the friendships we have and cultivate. The saints, by and large, were blessed with saintly relatives, friends and companions. Sharing a common vision, a common way of life, a mutual bond of affection for one another and for God, and a common desire to make the Lord known, loved and served are characteristic of the saints in each of the ten categories of relationships set forth in this volume on saintly companions. Husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters, relatives, friends, teachers and students, masters and disciples, co-founders, co-workers, and co-martyrs are all included in this compendium of saints. Enhanced by a comprehensive appendix of cross references, this work will be of interest to scholar and lay person alike interested in knowing more about the saints and how they became such “with a little help from their friends.”
