Abstract
 
Description
Mortal Saints and Immortal Callings explores the lives of twenty people?from Joan of Arc to Teresa of Avila and Francis of Assisi?who lived early lives of doubt and uncertainty, struggling to find their true vocation, but nevertheless are known to history as "saints." ?The saints teach us through their 'worldliness' ? the concrete dreams they sought to realize in the world, and the internal and external obstacles they faced ? as much as through their holiness, ? Phillips writes. ?They demonstrate that success is not necessarily a string of accomplishments on one's curriculum vitae but is also embodied in the dreams we harbor, the spirit with which we undertake what we do, and the fortitude with which we manage the inevitable disappointments and failures of life.? - from Amzon
