Blessed Among Us Day by Day With Saintly Witnesses by Robert Ellsberg gives the reader a way to spend time with and meditate on people who give us examples of living in closeness with God. As Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, says "Saints are the living Word of God but their biographies are often too encrusted with sentimentality and piety to serve as an inspiration for us. Ellsberg gives us their essence in this treasure of a book'. In his introduction Ellsberg talks about why the people included in the book and how they lived are important. They may not have had the official requirements for canonization but they lived lives that epitomized the Beatitudes and other teachings of Jesus, "poor in spirit, merciful, pure of heart and peacemakers" etc.
Each day of the year has the stories of the lives of 2 saintly people who range from Mary the Mother of Jesus to Galileo Galilei to Mahalia Jackson to Mohandas Gandhi. They are lay people and religious, single and married, canonized and not, and even non-Catholics whose faith and wisdom may helpfully guide us. They come from biblical times and present days and come from all over the world. Blessed Among Us gives you a way to meditate each day while learning more about some of the people called "saintly" in the world today.
