The Fulfillment of All Desire

A Guidebook for the Journey to God Based on the Wisdom of the Saints

by Ralph Martin ’64 (Emmaus Road Publishing)


Saints Augustine, Bernard of Clairvaux, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Francis de Sales and Thérèse of Lisieux:
The author draws on the writings of these seven saints, among the spiritual doctors of the Catholic Church, in this guide to ways of knowing God more deeply. The saints’ teachings, which are part of the Church’s mystical tradition, “really are giving us a ‘roadmap’ of the journey to God,” he writes.

Martin is director of graduate programs in the New Evangelization at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in the Archdiocese of Detroit and an assistant professor of theology.
