About this Event :
The most powerful books ever written are not written on paper but in the lives, faces, and witness of real people who inspire us and whose lives we want to emulate. For many centuries this was an important way Christian spirituality was taught. We were given the lives of the saints to imitate. For reasons ranging from the way many of the lives of the saints were written to the fact that many people today see the lives of the rich and famous as the “lives of the saints”, devotion to the saints today has sharply declined. We are the poorer for this. What do the saints of old still have to tell us? Who are the saints of today? Hagiography in a new key.
