Overview

This Classic Best-Seller has been revised for a fifth time to include those recently canonized, beatified or recognized as persons of heroic virtue. There are 13 new entries, including Saints Josephine Bakhita, Adalbert, Louis Mary de Montfort, Our Lady of Fatima, Christopher Magellanes, Rita of Cascia, Augustine Zhao Rong, Apollinarius, Sharbel Makhluf and Catherine of Alexandria, and two new celebrations for the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Most Holy Name of Jesus.

"Most saints weren't private people concerned with 'saving their soul,'" said Father Foley. "There were a few hermits, of course, but so many of them were out there in the front lines doing the Church's work, at times in spite of the Church itself. Because there were reformers, prophets, leaders, people who did what was right regardless of opposition, they were controversial. Some were even dismissed from their religious orders for being troublemakers."

Each of the more than two hundred entries includes a short biography of the saint, a comment linking the example of this life relevant to our own and an appropriate quotation from Scripture, the words of the saint or another spiritual writer for reflection.
