    Lives of the Improbable Saints

    From St Fillan of Munster, patron saint of the mentally ill, who read by the light of his miraculously glowing arm, to Santa Lucia, who tore out her eyes to dismiss the lascivious attentions of her would-be husband, here are nearly two hundred classic stories of the saints of Christian legend. Richard Coles, former half of 80s pop duo The Communards, now a Church of England priest and presenter of Radio 4's Saturday Live, has collected these wonderful tales from around the world. Despite their bizarre, colourful and sometimes grotesque stories, many of these saints are still celebrated and prayed to today. Every page illustrated by cartoonist Ted Harrison, giving the book a saintly Horrible Histories feel.

    I loved Jesus in the Night: Teresa of Calcutta

    ,
    I Loved Jesus in the Night is one priest's compelling memories of the icon of compassion. Sharing anecdote and firsthand experiences, Fr. Paul Murray gives a glimpse into why Mother Teresa had feelings of being a "saint of darkness." This very personal, yet powerful book is an attempt to understand the dark night experiences that she endured in the light of the Gospel and of the mystical teachings of St. John of the Cross. And something else as well...revelations of Mother Teresa's sense of humour! Through this intimate look at her "private writings," Paul Murray illumines the meaning of a life that is only now beginning to be understood.

In these wide-ranging devotions, full of contemporary stories and enjoyable cultural allusions, she introduces 24 characters who manifest a mysterious dynamic... and enable us to glimpse holiness in a new way.
