About this item

Age Range: 8 and up

Saints are the men and women who best love Christ and His Church. They may be kings or queens, statesmen or soldiers, scholars, visionaries, workmen or beggars. They teach us the real meaning of human history, and they show us how to live in any walk of life or set of circumstances.

Included in this anthology are famous saints - Francis of Assisi, Dominic, Joan of Arc, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila - but also more obscure ones, such as Raymond Lull and Hugh of Lincoln.

Many of these saints were martyrs, killed in periods of persecution. Others died trying to bring the knowledge of Christ to pagan tribes. Yet others built up the Church through their example and their teaching, but were never called upon to shed their blood.

These beautifully written stories follow one from another, linked through time in such a way that the reader easily obtains a vivid picture of the sweep of history, the history of Christendom as it unfolds in the lives of individual men and women right up to modern times, with the first citizen of the United States to be pronounced a saint, Mother Cabrini.

Every saint is different, every one a unique personality. Each of them finds his vocation and destiny in a different way - teaching us that God has in mind for you and me a very special adventure that will be all our own. The purpose of our lives is to find that mission that only we can fulfil in the body of the Church, for the love of God and our neighbour.

Introduce your children to the saints
My daughter who is nearly nine picked up this book to learn about the saints featured and she enjoyed the stories. One of her first questions to me after reading about St. Helen was to find out if there was a book where she could learn more about her. So while you aren't going to get a comprehensive saint biography in this book, your child may be inspired to learn more about his or her favorite saints. It is book worth having in any home with Catholic children and makes up for anything that it lacks in length with compelling storytelling.

Easy to read
I had this book when I was younger (about 50 years ago) and loved it. Bought it for my grandson who is an avid reader of saints at the age of 8!

A very nice gift
At first glance this book will be a very nice introduction to the Saints and a reference tool for my grandson as he continues his Catholic education and choosing a Saint for his Confirmation.

Love this book!
This has been a favorite in our homeschooling--and we have read a lot of saint books! The storytelling style of the author's writing is captivating! So glad to see this back in print!
