Joan Carroll Cruz For every Catholic man, here are heroes you can relate to. Men need role models, too. Here are more than 70 of the best: great men of modern times who lived their faith even when it meant giving up everything they had. From horse trader to Prime minister, these are men from every walk of life. Doctors, lawyers, construction workers, and civil servants all found holiness where they lived and worked. Some of them were martyrs to oppressive governments. Others were martyrs to physical ailments, or other problems that are all too familiar to us. A detailed topical index makes it easy to find heroes by their professions or by the problems they faced. Numerous photos bring the heroes to life as real people. This is the perfect gift for any Catholic man or boy, and an inspiring pick-me-up when you need a spiritual lift.
