Countless saints have been priests or religious, living out lives of penance and sacrifice for the good of the Church. But many Catholics don't realize that married couples are called to holiness as well.

Fr. Holböck's tells the inspiring stories of over 200 married saints and blesseds from the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph to Margaret of Scotland, King Louis of France, Thomas More, and modern examples like Gianna Molla and Louis and Zélie Martin, parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. The example of these holy men and women is essential to living a truly Catholic married life. Important Church documents and scripture passages are also included to further guide and enlighten the reader. Many illustrations.

“These inspiring and diverse profiles reveal what happens to marriage when it is transformed by sacramental grace. The author shows in warm detail the inherent challenges of making a life-long covenant in a fallen world. Through them we find hope for our own commitment.”
—Genevieve S. Kineke, Editor, Canticle Magazine for Women

Ferdinand Holböck, S.T.D., Professor of Theology at the University of Salzburg and Prelate of the Papal Household is the author of numerous works including the popular New Saints and Blesseds of the Church.
