Pierre Toussaint (1766-1853) was a slave but after liberation he succeeded as a hairdresser in New York. He took care of the poor and the orphans with love and mercy together with his wife. Pierre and Juliette deeply esteemed and loved each other, and became models of married people. This series will explore the lives and writings of married people who have been declared (or for whom there is a well-founded hope that they will be declared) saints. They are proposed by the Church as intercessors and models of the Christian life in their own particular state of life and circumstances.
The author presents a variety of modern married saints from different continents, cultures and professions, economic and social backgrounds. He highlights the magnificent variety of holiness which married couples can attain.
This series presents the married couples the Church upholds as models of conjugal life and as a Christian path to holiness.
