Since the beginning of time and throughout all history, people have inspired and upheld one another by sharing their stories of faith, in times of trial and in times of joy. With that same conviction and mission we have gathered these true stories from prayerful Catholics around the world to continue this legacy. These heartwarming hope-filled stories prove the power of prayer and clarify God’s presence and guidance in our everyday lives. This collection of stories includes those of:
- Dottie, distraught over her daughter’s anorexia, who renews her confidence in a devotion from her childhood. (“Sacred Heart of Jesus”)
- Connie, whose sister’s patience wears thin over prayers to St. Anthony to find a lost wallet. (“Just Pray to St. Anthony”)
- Beth, with a Stage IV diagnosis, who returns her doctor after a holy oil anointing. (“One Year”)
- Susanna, who has eight new friends with only two things in common: the military and some connection to Catholicism. (“Like Beads on a String”)
These stories will lift your spirits and nourish your souls. Read them one at a time, alone or in a group. Savor the scripture verse or quotation. Embrace the message. Deepen your faith. Take God’s hand as He guides you on your journey of hope.
The stories in this book were previously published in “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books “Living Catholic Faith, Answered Prayers,” and “A Book of Miracles.”
