But many Catholics don't realize that married couples are called to holiness as well. Fr.

The example of these holy men and women is essential to living a truly Catholic married life. Important Church documents and scripture passages are also included to further guide and enlighten the reader. Many illustrations.

This book gives historical examples of the the reality of marrriage and what it often entails to be done well. The dying blessed saying to her irresponsible husband: "THat was for you," about a hairshirt that she was wearing under her clothes for the conversion of his endangered soul, speaks volumes.
