review My Badass Book of Saints
As very light on actual information about these badass saints I m also not entirely sure what direction the author was trying to go with her book Is it about how holy she is or the saints The self congratulatory tone was off Carry Me Over the Threshold putting and I ended up being unable to finish I LOVE the concept of a book on badass saints especially those who struggled on their way to sainthood but I can t say this book accomplished much of anything This book was awesome Even if you aren t Catholic I highly recommend this book because of the strong and courageous women who are discussed in it I have been wanting to learn about saints especially female saints Maria Morera Johnson shares her very own vulnerable life experiences and relates them to each saint which helps show that they are relatable than what we think This book was very inspiring and Iray that I can embody these empowering female saints I m not Catholic but this book really resonated with me I appreciate that the Catholic Church holds up strong women as examples of Christ like love strength and assion At a time when I m fearful for making noise and standing up for the right thing I felt God speaking through this book and inspiring Women and saints including the gun toting Servant of God Sr Blandina Segal who tried to turn the heart of Billy the Kid; and Nazi resister Irena Sendler who helped smuggle children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II in a way that brings their vivid ersonalities to life and helps readers live out the challenges of their lives with virtue and conviction.
