Book Description

Book Description The inspiring stories of holy men and women are brought to life in reader-friendly ways.Catholics have always been fascinated with and deeply moved by the lives of the saints, yet each Catholic has his or her own purposes for studying or meditating on various saints of the Church. Voices of the Saints takes into account that different people prefer to reference the saints in different ways and for different reasons?and offers in one book many ways to look up the saints and learn from them. With 365 saints in this book?from popular figures to little-known individuals?every reader can be assured of finding his or her favorite saints. Readers can locate saints chronologically, alphabetically, by feast day, even by theme (such as conversion, forgiveness, humility, and miracles). The saint?s patronage is listed when available, as is the date of beatification or canonization. While the reference possibilities are abundant, best-selling author Bert Ghezzi has taken exceptional care to ensure that the inspiring stories of these saints are still the primary focus of the book, and each entry is written in such a way as to help us feel the companionship of the saint.? The voice of each saint comes through clearly in quotations drawn from their own writings, the recollections of witnesses, and the careful work of biographers. Each entry concludes with a Scripture verse or prayer. ?
