Father Butler's famous Lives of the Saints ranks only after the bible, the Missal, and The Imitation of Christ as the all-time most popular and authoritative Catholic book. The material in this handy one-volume edition is taken from the tomes of the highly revered Father Alban Butler, an English Catholic priest and scholar who devoted almost 30 years of meticulous research to the lives of the Saints and whose work was originally published in the 1750's. This present edition contains Father Butler's spirit of profound faith in and reverence for our saintly traditions. Additional saints have been added, however, who have lived since Fr. Butler's time. These saints include: St. Therese the Little Flower, Pope St. Pius X, St. Catherine Laboure and others. This book is still based on the traditional Catholic calendar (as of 1955).

Giving approximately one page per saint, plus a brief reflection based on the virtues of the saint of the day, this is an extremely valuable resource to read daily in order to put oneself in tune with our holy Catholic traditions and to develop a truly Catholic approach to life. Included here, are the feast days of canonized Martyrs, Confessors, Virgins, Popes, Bishops, etc. plus holy days like the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, the Assumption, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and many other feasts.

    No recent saint stories

    This was a Christmas gift my husband. He was disappointed to see that there were almost no recent saint stories. He said also that the wording was very stilted. There must be a more up-to-date book.
