Item description for Mortal Saints And Immortal Callings: Vocation in the Lives of the Saints by A'Dora Phillips...

While studying in Europe several years ago, A'Dora Phillips encountered a vision of St. Margaret in a painting by Titian. What unfolded from that experience was a life-changing immersion in the lives of the saints and the spirituality of those who believe in them. In this compelling book, the author shares the wisdom and guidance that she discovered. Mortal Saints and Immortal Callings explores the lives of eighteen people who struggled to live out the fullness of their vocation, people now known to history as "saints." Each chapter develops a particular theme that offers insights into our own everyday lives: -Courage and will (St. Joan of Arc and St. Margaret of Antioch) -Loneliness and perceived failure (Charles Foucauld) -Grace (St. Bernadette Soubirous and St. Edith Stein) -Finding one's true center (St. Teresa of Avila) -Devotion (Fra Angelico) and many more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mortal Saints And Immortal Callings: Vocation in the Lives of the Saints?

Beautiful view of the spiritual path for any seeker.  Aug 26, 2006
I read this book without knowledge of many of the saints, having been raised Quaker/agnostic, and I found it completely engaging and worthwhile. To learn about these very human lives, transformed through mundane and/or dramatic challenges, brought me into a new appreciation for them and the Catholicism of many of my dearest friends and relatives. Not only that, I felt an intimacy with the writer and the saints that bridged a gap I often rebel against in organized religion -- the holier than thou aspect was completely missing from this book. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in the path of the spirit, the world of work and heart.
New Insights for Old Knowledge  Jul 4, 2006
This book opened my eyes to new perspectives on the Saints that I thought I knew all about. This coupled with the creative writing style of the author made it a book I decided to read twice!
a rare find  Apr 17, 2006
I'm typically not one to participate in a public forum such as this, but I feel compelled to share a few words about this very exceptional little book.
I have read much on the lives of the saints and believe that Ms. Phillips is first to have written on this subject in just such a way as she has. Through a series of chapters, each devoted to one or more saints, each anchored in the personal narrative around her own struggles about what it means to live with grace and kindness in the world today, she unearths for the reader the tremendous courage and often small, often humble gems of wisdom that those who we now consider Saints embodied in their own daily lives.
Ms. Phillips writes in an inspiringly tender and poetic beauty that is a rare find today.
