Pictorial Lives of the Saints - With Reflections for Every Day of the Year

This book is beneficial today as it was in the 19th century with the daily reflections in the Church Year and the biographies of the saints.  A montessori teacher was happy we were reprinting this book as her tattered copy brought her hope and fortitude in the March and April 2020 lockdowns.   An FSSP assistant chaplain advised us: "We become like those we love  and associate with, and reading the lives of the saints makes them our companions in a way, keeps our point of view supernatural, and gives us high ideals.  Otherwise the world slowly but surely drags us down."   A family reading book for all to enjoy and the little ones will like to look at the 1887 images; while the older children and folks will find the saint biographies and the reflections most memorable. 

Our hope is to glorify God and honor His saints, by offering this book with top quality forest green real leather hardcover binding with traditional gold foiling for title and cover and spine artwork.
 
475 pages of Joy and Hope following the Liturgical Year and biographies of the saints
with daily reflections for each month of the year.

A well formatted 6 inch by 9 inch book with easily readable text for both young and old eyes.

Over 350 black and white edifying pictures of the saints!
