The saints were not without flaws. In the middle of their difficulties with sin and pain, they were real men and women who loved Jesus. These men and women were lights in the darkness, prophets of hope, and peacemakers during some of history's darkest days. They lived the Gospel in unique, fascinating, and inspiring ways while joyfully persevering through life's hardships.
Most books about the lives of the saints are paperback, and do not have a presentation as timeless or beautiful as we believe the lives of the saints deserve. For this reason, the Daughters of St. Paul of Pauline Books and Media, decided to take on the monumental project to write, design, and illustrate a volume of 365 saints and blesseds.
Over thirty of our sisters laboured on all elements of this timeless collection for over a decade, supported by the prayers of our sisters in convents and Pauline Books and Media bookstores around the world. We think it will capture the startling beauty of the saints' lives—a meeting of heaven and earth. May you form closer relationships with these holy men and women in paradise who show us how to live in Christ through the lovely reflections and amazing artwork. Let us all strive to be saints!
