We're pleased to announce the launch of a blog tour for SAINT by Lino Rulli.

If Rulli has his way, he will be canonized on Divine Mercy Sunday, which, allegedly, is when Blessed Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII will be canonized in Rome. (The official announcement will be next week- Sept. 30.) Rulli provides evidence for his cause (and yours) in SAINT.

Each day during the SAINT blog tour- Sept. 25 through Oct. 4- one of 10 participating blogs will post unique content relating to the book.

As readers follow along on this virtual book tour, they will have a chance to read exclusive excerpts from SAINT, and watch Skype interviews with Rulli. They'll get honest reviews from Catholic bloggers, and have a chance to win a copy of the book at different stops along the tour.

Thank you to all the incredible bloggers who will be hosting stops on the tour. Please support them by visiting their sites.

You can purchase SAINT through Servant Books or Also tune in to The Catholic Guy radio show on Sept. 30 for a special announcement!

About the book
Rulli's first book, SINNER, was full of stories- honest, humorous, bold, poignant- illustrating why he deserved that title. This new book takes another approach, another angle: why Lino is on his way to sainthood. Often hilarious, but always with a point, SAINT focuses on God's grace and shows how even a sinner like Lino can look forward to being a saint. As Lino puts it: "Instead of stories of small triumphs and many failures, this is a book to encourage you in your own triumphs, to realize you might not be as big a sinner as you think, and that with God's help, you might just become a saint."

Picking up where SINNER left off, SAINT points the way to our end goals: holiness and sainthood, and does so in a way that entertains as well as inspires.

Rulli had a special devotion to his favorite saint, Blessed Pope John Paul, which he chronicles throughout this book. Rulli discusses what it was like to have a front-row seat at the funeral of Blessed Pope John Paul II; the rosary Blessed Pope John Paul II gave him; visiting his tomb; and traveling to Poland, the birthplace of Blessed Pope John Paul II, to experience the historical places that molded the life of the memorable saint. Therefore, the official announcement on September 30 of Blessed John Paul II will be very special for Lino. Don't forget to tune in to The Catholic Guy radio show on that date for a special announcement!
