My Life with the Saints 10th Anniversary Edition is available now?! James Martin has led an entirely modern life: from a lukewarm Catholic childhood, to an  education at the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to ministry as a Jesuit priest, to a busy media career in Manhattan. But at every step he has been accompanied by some surprising friends--the saints of the Catholic Church. For many, these holy men and women remain just historical figures. For Martin, they are intimate companions. "They pray for me, offer me comfort, give me examples of discipleship, and help me along the way," he writes. The author is both engaging and specific about the help and companionship he has received. When his pride proves trouble#65533;some, he seeks help from Thomas Merton, the monk and writer who struggled with egotism. In sickness he turns to Th#65533;r#65533;se of Lisieux, who knew about the boredom and self-pity that come with illness. Joan of Arc shores up his flagging courage. Aloysius Gonzaga deepens his compassion. Pope John XXIII helps him to laugh and not take life too seriously. Martin's inspiring, witty, and always fascinating memoir encompasses saints from the whole of Christian history-- from St. Peter to Dorothy Day. His saintly friends include Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Mother Teresa, and other beloved figures. They accompany the author on a lifelong pilgrimage that includes stops in a sunlit square of a French town, a quiet retreat house on a New England beach, the gritty housing projects of inner-city Chicago, the sprawling slums of Nairobi, and a gorgeous Baroque church in Rome. This rich, vibrant, stirring narrative shows how the saints can help all of us find our way in the world. "In a cross between Holden Caulfield and Thomas Merton, James Martin has written one of the best spiritual memoirs in years." --Robert Ellsberg, author of All Saints "It isn't often that a new and noteworthy book comes along in this genre, but we have reason to celebrate My Life with the Saints. It is earmarked for longevity. It will endure as an important and uncommon contribution to religious writing." --Doris Donnelly, America "An account . . . that is as delightful as it is instructive." --First Things "In delightful prose Martin recounts incidents, both perilous and funny, that have prompted him to turn to the saints, and in doing so shows us a new way of living out a devotion that is as old and universal as the Church." --Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ, Fordham University "An outstanding and often hilarious memoir." --Publishers Weekly "Martin's final word for us is as Jungian as it is Catholic: God does not want us to be like Mother Teresa or Dorothy Day. God wants us to be most fully ourselves." --The Washington Post Book World… (lisätietoja)

[a:James Martin|16201|Niccolò Machiavelli|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1185567895p2/16201.jpg] is a great guy to have in the spotlight as an example of Jesuit life. He's also a great writer whose humbleness and natural humor comes through the written word as easily as it does on camera.

This book is a wonderfully original way of writing an autobiography. By focusing on specific saints as they related to his life in various phases, we get a sense not only of the external events, but also of the interior transformation that took place in James over his lifetime. It's is a very accessible book and a fun read that keeps your attention nicely, but it doesn't demand you sit and read it at length. I'll put it on the list of "good bathroom reading". ( )

As I write it's the Feast of St. George, and I'm smitten that there's a feast day for a dragon slayer. (Also that George is patron saint of herpes sufferers.) Sure, maybe no dragons were smitten or maidens sacrificed in the real life of George, but I grew up on the fairy tale. Saints likely contributed to my love of biography and understanding of how narratives take on a life independent of veracity. James Martin claims quite a life story himself, forsaking the corporate world for the Jesuit religious order and a vocation in media. Saints are Martin's framework to tell his own story, as he reflects on how religious figures first captivated him. Martin's lives of the saints aren't much more complicated than back-of-the-church tracts, but they inspire him to find goodness in others, and that slays me.

This spiritual memoir weaves the lives of the saints with those of Martin’s impressive experiences. In James Martin’s My Life with the Saints, St. Jude was always there for him. With St. Joan of Arc he discovered the true French spirit. St. Thérèse of Lisieux was a distinctive “little flower” his heroes revered. Thomas Merton was a bundle of contradictions, but a rock to emulate. St. Ignatius of Loyola - founder of the Jesuits, provided a path that wasn’t always straight. While Pedro Arrupe he admired, and was saddened by his gradual demise.
Martin remembered the Song of Bernadette, and his experiences at Lourdes. St. Mother Teresa was glorified with the Missionaries of Charity. He was struck by the wit and wisdom of Pope John XXⅢ, and the practice of voluntary poverty of Dorothy Day. After his novitiate he took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, and the “vow name” Peter. But St. Thomas Aquinas augmented his gifts of reason, faith, and humility.
In St. Francis of Assisi, Martin saw the “imitation of Christ.” Jesus’s father Joseph lived a hidden life just like the Little Sisters of Jesus in sub-Sahara Africa. But his work with the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), visits to the shrine in Namugongo in honor of Saint Charles Lwanga and his companions, further opened his eyes to the plight of Africans, and the Ugandan martyrs.
Martin was struck by St. Aloysius Gonzaga’s determination to enter religious life, and described the opposition of his father as similar to those of his parents about his intention to leave the corporate world. He however found comfort by praying Hail Mary when he wanted something because he knew she was there to intercede for us. He wrote readers would be impressed by the contemporary saints, but he however saw them as models, and enjoyed the benefits of their experiences. But when it comes to Christian believers Martin wrote, “Each of us brings something to the table, and we each through our own gifts, manifest a personal way of holiness that enlivens the community. We help build up the Kingdom of God in ways that others cannot.” ( )

Written in such a way that you not only feel the passion for the Saints as Martin did, but want to experience it for yourself! ( )
