The Heart of a Saint:

Ten Ways to Grow Closer to God

by Bert Ghezzi ’69Ph.D. (The Word Among Us Press)


The book portrays 10 heroes of the faith, from Francis of Assisi and Roque Gonzalez to Dorothy Day and Pope John Paul II, whose lives demonstrate how we can grow closer to God.

Suggestions for reflection, prayer and action for growing in the particular spiritual quality exhibited by each holy person end each chapter.

“Holiness is not the narrowly guarded privilege of a few but rather an abundantly available opportunity for all,” says the author, who holds a doctorate from Notre Dame.
