The man who built the secret door

one woman in a million

doubling his five

the man who died laughing

Ruth, the faithful

Marathon winner with a broken leg

a perfect success - at twenty four

the man who had a circus

champion among the bluebloods

the man in a plane

a man with a first rate hobby

two cups flour, one cup milk

St. Peter was worried. Someone was letting new souls enter heaven, and not through the Golden Gate, either! Whats more, all these strange souls confidently assured St. Peter that they had entered by perfectly legitimate means. Where did they come from? Who were they and how did they get in?

St. Joseph had been at work. A carpenter still, he put in a secret door right into the Throne Room (he has that privilege, you know, because he is so close to our Lord). This secret door was covered by our Ladys beautiful blue mantle, and through this door he let his own special clients enter heaven.

Now we can all be special clients of St. Joseph and all we need do is ask him. He is perfectly qualified to build "the secret door" (which is really the way to perfection and heaven). He is not only willing to help, but also very easy to approach.

Thus, the author, with her bright imagination, recaptures the spirits of the saints, restores their flesh and blood appearance, and in "asides" tells how we can imitate them.

There are twelve lively sketches of saints representing various walks of life. The simple life of Mary, for instance, is given a real domestic touch with the title "Two Cups Flour, One Cup Milk" - she is the perfect homemaker! Professors and lawyers have their examples, too - St. Thomas Aquinas, scholar and professor, did only his duty and gained perfection; St. Thomas More, a successful lawyer, himself, is a special example of fidelity to conscience in the face of great temptation and opposition.

And, there are others: St. Ignatius, soldier; St. Luke, "The Man with a First Rate Hobby"; St. Theresa of Avila, nun - these are only half of the delightful sketches presented here.

High school youth will find them attractive, adults will find them appealing, and all will find here a sure source of interest and inspiration.
