This book is the perfect solution for so many Catholics anxious to get reacquainted with the lives of the more popularly known saints, but who have too little time to read more thorough biographies. There are approximately five hundred entries covering the feast days for each day of the year with an accompanying pictorial sketch of the saint being honored. The historical information is taken from the original work of the great hagiographer, Father Alban Butler, as well as from a few other sources. Meditations are also provided for the major moveable feasts. What better way to incite young and old to imitate the saints than by giving them a less compendious and easily read production through which to whet their appetite with holy desires!
