My Life with the Saints is at once James Martin's inspiring memoir of spiritual self-discovery and a homage to the Catholic saints who accompanied him every step of the way. From his lukewarm childhood Catholicism to the executive fast track at General Electric to the Jesuits and a life dedicated to God, Martin looked and prayed to the saints - from St. Peter to Pope John XXIII - to intervene and guide his life. As this witty, confessional, and surprising account unfolds, we see how saints can help us each find our way in the world.  

Witty, wryly honest, and always original, My Life with the Saints is James Martin’s story of how his life has been shaped by some surprising friends - the saints of the Catholic Church. In his modern classic memoir, Martin introduces us to saints throughout history—from St. Peter to Dorothy Day, St. Francisof Assisi to Mother Teresa - and chronicles his lifelong friendships with them. Filled with fascinating tales, Martin’s funny, vibrant, and stirring book invites readers to discover how saints guide us throughout our earthly journeys and how they help each of us find holiness in our own lives.

Featuring a new chapter from Martin, this tenth-anniversary edition of the best-selling memoir updates readers about his life over the past ten years. In that time, he has been a New York Times best-selling author, official chaplain of The Colbert Report‚Äč, and a welcome presence in the media whenever there’s a breaking Catholic news story. But he has always remained recognizably himself.
