Overview

Everyone has an angel story, or so it seems, but the Catholic Church has some pretty spectacular ones, especially those that are found in the lives and legends of the saints. Starting in earliest Christian times with Gregory the Great and finishing in the 20th century with one of the Church's newest saints, Padre Pio, Partners in Holiness: Guardian Angels in the Lives of the Saints tells the stories of nine men and women who grew in virtue and holiness with the assistance of their angels. Sometimes the help was sublime; sometimes it was stunning.

Written in a manner friendly to the young adult reader but easily enjoyed by all age groups, these accounts recreate the times and settings in which they occurred. But always at their core is the message that the friendship of an angel is not just for a canonized saint, but is a gift to each of us, saint or sinner.

Woven throughout the book are teachings and anecdotes about the angels from a Catholic perspective. For anyone interested in angelology, hagiography, history, theology, or just an inspiring read, Partners in Holiness: Guardian Angels in the Lives of the Saints satisfies on many levels.

    Like the way the stories are told in a "fictionalized"

    Like the way the stories are told in a "fictionalized" manner. Not that they are, but the reading flows well. Very interesting.

    Good Catholic Book About Saints and Angels

    Interesting and inspiring in parts. Lots of stuff that was new to me (but I'm not much of a history buff). Potential readers should be aware that this is a book for traditional-minded Catholics. If you or your teen are used to light and airy religious reading, you may find this a little heavy. On the other hand, if you're looking for a good, solid Catholic book, you can't go wrong for the price. Interesting tidbits throughout too.
