"With so much fear and anxiety in our world today, Father Sicari’s excellent book offers us a beautiful remedy: the saints. They teach us not only how to face life with grace, but how to face (our inevitable) death with the peace of Christ."
— Dawn Beutner, Author, Saints: Becoming an Image of Christ Every Day of the Year

"Father Sicari gives us a profound insight into the mystery of death, the ultimate human tragedy transformed and redeemed through the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.  By studying how the saints died, we gain courage and insight to face our own death with surrender, peace, and joy.  This wonderful book will inspire believers to both live and die for the Lord, trusting in the One who has walked the valley of death before us and opened the way to eternal life."
— Most Rev. Donald Hying, Bishop of Madison, Wisconsin; Author, Love Never Fails

"Every day throughout the world, millions of Catholics ask Our Lady to pray for them 'at the hour of our death'. That petition in the Hail Mary calls to our attention the significance of that moment we all will face, when we will pass from this world to the next. It is the moment at which our life realizes its purpose and fulfillment. In How Saints Die, Antonio Maria Sicari puts before us the examples of the saints, of how they died, and—just as importantly—of how their holiness of life led them to a holy death. May these stories inspire us to live now in light of that moment when we too will greet the Bridegroom when He comes."
— Fr. Paul D. Scalia, Author, That Nothing May Be Lost: Reflections on Catholic Doctrine and Devotion
