Saint Justin dedicated his entire life to the service of vocations. He saw priests and consecrated people as ministers of sanctification, and he is the apostle of Universal Sanctification; to achieve universal sanctification priests and consecrated ministers are needed.
Using his life as an example, author Father Louis Caputo hopes St. Justin may be a source of inspiration for many people and will show people that every life is a vocation.
