Feast of St Eustathius the Great Martyr, His Wife and Two Children
Christ in His Saints by Patrick Henry Reardon
CHRIST IN His Saints is the beautiful exposition of nearly 150 saints from both the Old and New Testaments. As a speaker, pastor, and author, Fr. Reardon’s reflections are timely and insightful; there is more here than mere accounts of the lives of our holy ancestors in Christ. His narrative is weighted with doctrine, history, and theology revealed through each saint’s Christian journey. One essay, “the conversion of St. Paul,” begins as a meditation of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet, showing that Christ chooses how and when He will bring us to repentance. Jesus Himself selects the time, the place, and the vessels of His revelation. Christ in His Saints helps us see the continuity of Scripture as a history of God’s unrelenting love for very normal people. The book is divided into saints “Clever and Wise,” “Questions and Questioners,” “Repentant Saints,” and even “Saints in Need of Improvement.” Seen through the imagination of Reardon’s writing, our lives and the lives of these very human heroes don’t seem at all disconnected.
