In Seven Principles of Sainthood, author Mary K. Doyle explores the life of Saint Mother Theodore Guérin to illustrate the basic principles we all should follow in our journey of faith.
Doyle shows how holiness is available to all of us as long as we have the desire. We are already on the road to heaven if we are willing to:
Pray with the saints
- Lead by serving
- Trust in Providence
- Be just and kind
- Spread the word of the Lord
- Forgive like Jesus
- Strive for humility
Seven Principles of Sainthood concludes each chapter with questions designed for self-examination and evaluation. Readers can also take advantage of the Appendix offering several of Saint Mother Theodore's favorite prayers.
