Best-selling Catholic author Paul Thigpen opens up that treasury in A Year With the Saints: Daily Meditations With the Holy Ones of God. These 365 reflections draw from the writings and lives of holy men and women across two thousand years. Their spiritual and practical insights for Christian living are as fresh and relevant today as they were when they were first written.
Catholics around the world rely on the Catholic saints for guidance and inspiration . . . so it's important that the saints and their stories be easy to find. Voices of the Saints by Bert Ghezzi provides readers with many convenient ways to look up 365 Catholic saints: chronologically, alphabetically, by feast day, even by theme. The saint's patronage is also listed when available, as is the date of beatification or canonization. While the reference possibilities are abundant, 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 recollection of witnesses, and the careful work of biographers.
This devotional guide commemorates the saints universally honored in the Roman Catholic Church. Father Pennington has written an insightful Introduction which illuminates the spiritual graces we can experience when meditating on and praying with the saints throughout the year. The entries are arranged chronologically, corresponding to the feasts observed at weekday liturgies. Pennington opens each one with a brief note on the saint's life or role in the Church. There follows an excerpt by or about the saint drawn from the saint's life, writings, or spoken words. The author invites us to begin to walk with the saints. "Get to know them better," he suggests, and "listen to them speak to us here now through these, their recorded words." To further assist us, Pennington offers a Select Bibliography of works on the saints. This unique compendium can be used year after year for private use, parish use, worship, and study. For all who seek a clearer understanding of the feast days and their relevance in our lives, it is a welcome spiritual aid. Through the Year with the Saints will enhance our friendship with the company of the saints.
"May the Lord grant us all the hope of being saints." Pope Francis recently shared this prayer with the world. We can all become saints. We just have to open our hearts and let God help us. This book introduces a saint for each day of the year--ordinary people who made the choice to love Jesus and give their lives to him. These stories, prayers, and suggestions for becoming holy are designed with our needs and our lives in mind. But this is not your ordinary "Book of Saints." Each day's reflection is designed to inspire and challenge you to become who God intends for you to become. We can do this. But we need the help of the saints!
320 pages. Filled with the Sayings and Examples of the Saints. Wisdom From the Saints! A Catholic Virtue for each month of the Year Broken down into Daily Doses of Wisdom For you to Think about, Pray About, Meditate About, enriching your Spiritual Life and Becoming a Better Christian Along the Way. Translator's Preface: In presenting this work for the first time in English dress, the translator would take the opportunity of drawing the attention of the devout American reader to one or two peculiarities in its structure, which have already won for it a wide recognition among readers of books of its class in Europe. In the first place, the allotment of separate months to individual virtues agrees well with a practice of self-examination much recommended by many spiritual writers, who advise us to take different virtues in turn as the objects of special effort. Nothing certainly could be better fitted to assist us in the acquisition of a virtue, than these selections from the writings of the most eminent masters of spiritual science, which portray its beauties, declare its necessity, or explain its various degrees and the methods of its attainment. In the second place, the few words of exhortation or instruction, which open the reading for each day, are followed by the best of all commentaries- that of action. A great part of the book is composed of examples, which, while they have the interest of anecdote, furnish at the same time the strongest proofs of the possibility of carrying out in real life, precepts and principles which might otherwise seem too high and heavenly for our every-day existence. In the hope then that these exotic flowers may flourish and blossom in many an American garden, they are offered to the lovers of spiritual excellence and beauty by the translator. The Translator
The inspiring stories of 365 holy men and women-from the best known to some of the most obscure-come to life in an engaging collection of biographical profiles, quotations from the saints themselves, meditations, and prayers. Voices of the Saints opens with an instruction from Saint Philip Neri: "The best preparation for prayer is to read the lives of the saints, not from mere curiosity, but quietly and with recollection a little at a time. And to pause whenever you feel your heart touched with devotion." With these words of faith and wisdom as his guiding principle, Bert Ghezzi presents the lives of such familiar and beloved saints as Saint Peter and Saint Catherine of Siena; Saint Jerome and Saint Thérèse of Lisieux; of humble, little-known figures like Felix of Nola, Pelagia the Penitent, and Leonard of Port Maurice; and of sainted men and women associated with a particular place, including Margaret of Scotland, Rose of Lima, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Junípero Serra. In lively profiles written for contemporary readers, Ghezzi chronicles their journeys of faith and their contributions to the vitality of the Church. The voices of the saints resound throughout the book, in quotations drawn from their own writings, the works of biographers, and the recollections of witnesses. Readers can use Voices of the Saints in several different ways. Organized alphabetically, it serves as a helpful, easy-to-use dictionary. It also features a day-by-day numbering system, ideal for daily readings; notations at the end of each entry, enabling the exploration of the lives in historical order; an index that highlights particular themes (including the intriguing "Porcupine Saints"), and a calendar of saints' days. A fascinating look at disparate and unusual lives-each one a rich source of illumination, inspiration, encouragement, and motivation-along with prayers and meditations, Voices of the Saints is a valuable companion for members of Catholic, Episcopal, and other traditional c

Revised and updated edition of the perennial Georgetown University Press classic, Saints of the Liturgical Year, this beautiful and comfortably sized guide is compact, but brimming with information. This edition includes over 260 brief biographies, including 33 new entries, as well as a glossary of terms to help explain the theology of the Roman Catholic Church. Based on the General Roman Calendar, presently in use in the Roman Catholic Church, it also includes the feasts, Saints, and Blesseds from the Liturgical Calendar of the Society of Jesus—known as the Jesuits—as officially observed within the Society of Jesus. Offering inspiration and encouragement, Saints and Feasts of the Liturgical Year functions as an aid in introducing the faithful to the day's feast or to the saint whose memorial is being celebrated. As a gift, for personal or group study, and helpful for introducing parishioners to the history of the church, this book can also be used as a source of ideas for all pastors.
This companion book to "Lives of the Saints" includes short biographies of other Saints not included in the official post-Vatican II liturgical calendar for the Universal Church.
Gives approximately one page per Saint, plus a brief reflection based on the virtues of the Saint of the day.
