God give me a beautiful home. That is what a child wrote, having just learned about the work of St George's Crypt, which looks after the people of Leeds who don't have any home, let alone a beautiful one. They come to the Crypt when there is nowhere left to go, no one else to turn to.

Like more than a third of his colleagues, Roger Quick first came to the Crypt in need of help himself. Decades later he came back as its chaplain, and every day since then he has been moved by the courage and insight, borne of great suffering, shown by those who still pass through its doors. In Sheltering Saints he tells their stories, full of tears and laughter, pain and compassion.
