Overview

This new concise Butler's provides an essay on one saint for each day of the month, using the twelve-volume full edition of Butler's Lives of the Saints as a source. Selections are made from both categories of Saint" and *Blessed - - canonized and beatified, allowing for the increasing proportion of women and of new- and third-world holy people.

Completely rewritten in a popular style, this volume also has more *spiritual - appeal than the full edition. A prayer and intercessory reflection is included after each entry, which lend themselves to family or small-group meditation as well as to individual devotion. The volume also suggests baptismal/confirmation names for the day's commemorations or for inclusion in prayers.

Paul Burns is the general editor of theButler's Lives of the Saints series published by Liturgical Press.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In its original form, this work was a classic statement for a broad English-speaking audience; the publisher recently lightly updated and expanded it, republishing it in 12 volumes. This publication, a concise selection of one saint per day per month through the calendar year, is as welcome as the 12-volume set and as charming, accessible, and thoughtful as Butler's original. For most libraries, especially those that did not purchase the full series. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
