About Rediscover the Saints (Hardcover)
We are capable of so much more than we think. You have no idea what you are capable of. None of us do. God is constantly trying to open our eyes to the amazing possibilities that he has enfolded in our being. The saints continue this work, encouraging us to explore all our God-given potential, not with speeches but with the example of their lives.
When we have the courage to collaborate with God and pursue our truest self, he lights a fire within us that is so bright and warm, it keeps shining long after our days on this earth have come to an end. The lives of the saints have captivated the people of every age for this very reason.
There are two questions that confront the people of every place and time, questions that confront you and me today: Are you satisfied with the direction the world is moving in? Are you satisfied with your life?
These questions are always before us, within us, around us. They are part of our spiritual quest and part of our human quest. These questions linger in our minds when we read the news of happenings in our own country and around the world. They tickle our souls when we witness the battle between good and evil, however it manifests in our own lives.
Are you satisfied with the direction the world is moving in? This is one of life’s inescapable questions, and we each respond with passionate action or selfish indifference.
Our collective dissatisfaction with the direction of the world leads to the consensus that the world needs changing. And yet, we seem gripped by exasperation and paralyzed by the false belief that we can’t do anything about it. The saints dispel that exasperation and inspire us to bold action. They remind us over and over again: We can change the world.

Rediscover the Saints
This book is very inspirational and motivating!! I greatly enjoyed reading and re-rereading the chapters. They are packed full of treasures and gems for living life to the fullest!! I highly recommend reading this book!!!
Every chapter in every Saint made me think of people in my life who remind of the Saints in the book. People who have traits such as theirs . It made me want to tell them about the book. So much so I bought 2 additional books.
Rediscover the Saints worth your time
Easy read with good suggestions about how to follow the saints and become one!
The preface to the book is great! I had my 10 year old read it, since it was related to Good Friday. I loved the questions my son had. He didn't complain at all about having to read this.
There are wonderful quotes, that make you stop and think, then reflect on how can I become a better version of myself. Enjoying this book!
The saints humanized
I enjoyed the book very much because it brought out the saints humanity along with real life reflections on their special attributes. I have gifted it to others since reading it. I also liked pairing it with Best Lent Ever.
We’ll rise up !!!!
I nearly read the first story and I’m already relating it in my life as me asking God to pls remember me Jesus ... I cried like a babe after the first story imagine what’s going to do to me when I finish the book
Not what I expected
I bought this book thinking it was going to be a history/biography of Saints who Matthew Kelly had chosen to feature. It’s not! But it is so much more with actual application of their lives connected to his. Very enjoyable read.
The Holy Moment Book!
I enjoyed the book, it was truly less about the saint and more about a particular trait they had that you were trying to get across to the reader, once I realized that it opened up many joyous moments for me. The concept of the Holy Moments is brilliant I try for as many as possible each day.
Great addition to my collection!
From cover to cover, I enjoyed this life changing book, in partiular following it thru the BEST LENT EVER series. Reading more about the lives of Saints I love, learning more about others, and applying their example to our own lives in the inspiring Matthew Kelly style is rewarding. I am proud to be a Dynamic Catholic Ambassador......Praise God!
I'm not a reader. It takes a lot to keep my attention. This book is a keeper. I will share it, but read it again and again. Thank you!! God bless!
Transforming the Saints
This book changed the way I looked at saints. Before, they were distant and unattainable, much holier than me and a reminder of all the ways I was falling short in my faith. Rediscover the Saints changed that. Matthew Kelly humanized the saints and inspired me to allow God into my life more. It instilled in me that I, too, can be a saint, if only I surrender my life to God!
Great informational spiritual tool
Rediscover the Saints has become a source of daily inspirational reading. It is part of beginning my day with a positive and varied spiritual lesson each day. A prayer and a chapter along with a couple of minutes of devotion and introspection sets my day off on exactly the right path.
I love it ! I had the book but I had not read it until Lent when you read the lives of our saints you realize we all can do that - we can all just do small things with great love! Thank you so much for this series &
This wonderful book -perfect reminder at the perfect time our enthusiasm can help others , our holy moments can change the world - one moment at a time
This book is a powerful reflection on how to change your life by reflecting on how the saints lived their lives in harmony with God. Matthew Kelly makes saints come alive as real people doing ordinary things that helped them discern God’s purpose for them and bringing them closer to Him. It is in this simplicity we can all become better people. So glad I bought this book.
I love the book. It has inspired me to want to read up on the life of the saints and see how they can inspire my life.
Also, Matthew Kelly has a great way of making me think of myself, my life, and my growth And relationship with Christ.
Becoming Who You are Through thebSaints
Each journey God maps out for us is deeply personal. Learning about the saints’ personal spiritual journey helped me realize more that The saints were ordinary people living truly inspired lives as a result of listening to the calling from God. This realization became more exciting and personal for me. I am called to be a saint, too. We are all called. While my personal journey won’t make it on the New York Times Best Seller list, it will make it into heaven, the Kingdom of God. And that’s exactly where I yearn to be.
I’m about halfway through the book and I already know I’ll be reading it again after I give it to my husband to read. It’s so enlightening and really brings the saints to life. Makes you realize they were just regular people like us and went through the same doubts and frustrations we are. Really opening my eyes! Love it!
Making this Lent the Best Lent Ever!
This book is amazing and open up my eyes to a different view of the saints. I am reading the book with the Best Lent Ever journal which guides you into what chapter to read each day as well as today’s gospel. The combination of both has made this lent life changing compared to other years. I hope that there will be another lent journal available for many years to come. Matthew Kelly is an amazing author, and this book as well as his other books have taught me how to pray.
Life changing reading
This book will touch your heart, lift your spirits and bring energizing light into your weary soul. Matthew Kelly brings us food for spiritual thought that translates into our becoming the best version of ourselves and moving closer to God. “Rediscovering the Saints” will inspire you in more ways than you would have thought possible.
Saints are closer
As always, Matthew keeps you engaged in the reading. With his personal experiences and profound knowledge of saints, he catches your interest for these people who are saints now. I recommend this book to start learning about saints who influence the lives of many people, and to start a relationship with some of them. Saints are closer because Matthew brings them to you!
Love it !
I am now reading this for the third time to accompany the videos and it is amazing that every time I read it I see and understand something different about the saints and my own life ! I am enjoying how the book is being tied into the Best Lent Ever and appreciate seeing the saints in a new light and how their lives apply to my own life. God worked in amazing ways in their lives and is doing the same in my own life! I enjoy the short chapters that allow me take in the whole chapter each day and see it applying to my encounters during the day.
Thank you Matthew Kelly and the Dynamic Catholic team.....brilliant !
It was not rediscovering the saints but discovering them. They became personal and alive to me in the brief and relevant summary of their impact on our faith. And the questions did change my life, answering them answered many questions I had at every level of my life. Yes it was life changing and a renewal of my faith. Thank you.
This book is just what we need to see saints as ordinary people, just like us, who surrendered to the will of God and became extraordinary, just as we can be. Thank you Matthew for getting me out of my comfort zone!
This book is fantastic. The prologue alone will suck you in. I had my non-catholic mother read the prologue and she said she cried so much it was hard to read through the tears. Now she wants to read the whole thing. <3 Such a blessing! Thank you Matthew Kelly and Dynamic Catholic.
Daily dose of inspiration
This book brings to life how the attributes of individual saints can inform and inspire our daily lives in the modern world. The short chapters (3-4 pages) are a perfect way to start or end each day. I have read and contemplated a chapter each day, and plan to start over again when I finish. This book has a permanent home on my nightstand. Thank you, Matthew!
