    Winner of a 2016 Association of Catholic Publishers Excellence in Publishing Award: Inspirational Books (First Place).In this edgy, honest, and often audacious book of Catholic spirituality, blogger and popular podcaster Maria Morera Johnson explores the qualities of twenty-four holy women who lived lives of virtue in unexpected and often difficult circumstances.In My Badass Book of Saints, Johnson shares her experience as a first-generation Cuban-American, educator of at-risk college students, and caregiver for a husband with Lou Gehrig's disease. Through humorous, empowering, and touching portraits of twenty-four spiritual mentors who inspired her, Johnson shows how their bravery, integrity, selflessness, perseverance, and hope helped her and can help others have courage to reach for a closer connection to God.She presents remarkable holy women and saints--including the gun-toting Servant of God Sr. Blandina Segale who tried to turn the heart of Billy the Kid, and Nazi resister Irena Sendler who helped smuggle children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II--in a way that brings their vivid personalities to life and helps readers live out the challenges of their lives with virtue and conviction.

    "Award-winning author Maria Morera Johnson follows up her bestselling book My Badass Book of Saints with a unique and daring exploration of the cardinal virtues through the saints and heroines of science fiction, fantasy, and comic books. Johnson will reignite your passion for your faith as she demonstrates the heroic in the sometimes mundane quest for good and reminds us that Catholicism is filled with adventure. What do Wonder Woman and St. Katharine Drexel have in common? How about St. Clare of Assisi and Rey, the ingenue from Star Wars: The Force Awakens? All four women sought justice for the abused. With the same zest for her faith and cheeky wit that readers found so compelling in My Badass Book of Saints and a love for the heroic journey that highlights her career, Johnson now focuses on heroines-improbable pairings of saints and characters from sci-fi, comics, and fantasy-who have influenced her life and deepened her understanding of the Church's cardinal virtues: prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice. With Johnson's enthusiasm as a guide, you'll be inspired to embrace the virtues anew and find your faith in your favorite stories."
