Overview

The saints have been a great source of consolation and instruction since the early days of Christianity. Through their guidance, protection, and intercession, they prove perpetually ready to help us prevail in our personal struggles—be they earthly or spiritual.

 

The Essential Wisdom of the Saints gathers together hundreds of memorable quotations that express the fundamental beliefs of these extraordinary men and women, beginning with the first saints and extending to those canonized only within the last decade. The selections are arranged thematically and reflect subjects that were most important to the saints themselves and that continue to have special meaning for all of us:

  • St. Thérèse of Lisieux expresses her childlike trust in God and encourages us to do the same
  • St. Thomas Aquinas offers insight into the enduring struggle between body and soul
  • St. John of Avila reflects on the meaning of suffering
  • St. Paul encourages us to remain humble
The saints also offer insights on topics such as how to pray, the need for charity, the importance of forgiveness, the pitfalls of the material world, and the significance of sainthood itself.

 Whether you’re looking for guidance in your own spiritual journey, for an extra measure of inspiration to get through the day, or simply to learn more about the thoughts and words of these great men and women of God, The Essential Wisdom of the Saints is a moving collection that you will turn to again and again.

    Great gift book!

    This is a wonderful book anyone can pick up and put down for either short reflections or simply personal reading pleasure. I bought 6 copies for Catholic high school teacher gifts and the book was a big hit with everyone. Not heavy-handed theology...just pleasant spiritual touchpoints.

    Lovely Words of Wisdom

    Who knew the saints were going to be sooo up to date! So many great sayings that are good for today's world. The book is well organized so you can go to the specific topic and it is great to just page through as well. This is a great gift book and a not too preachy. Good value.

    Wisdom of the Saints

    If you want to know all about the Saints, this book is for you. It is written to give information by looking for a specific Saint, or you can read it cover to cover. I am in the process of converting to Catholicism and this book was very meaningful to me.
