In two stories per day for a full calendar year, Robert Ellsberg sketches figures from biblical times to the present age and from all corners of this world - ordinary figures whose extraordinary lives point to the new age in the world to come. While the church officially recognizes a relatively small number of saints, Blessed Among Us explores an eclectic "cloud of witnesses" - lay and religious, single and married, canonized and not, and even non-Christians whose faith and wisdom may illuminate our path.
