Overview

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.
