Author: Ethel Pochocki.
Spending time with saints and heroes old and new reassures us that life is a great gift, that we can overcome obstacles, that God loves us all, that we, too, can follow Jesus Christ.
In this revised and expanded version of Saints and Heroes for Kids, Ethel Pochocki writes, "This gathering of holy ones spans twenty centuries, yet their circumstances and problems mirror ours today. These saints and heroes, too, wrestled with wars and ethics, commitment and service, right thinking and wise acting. Just like us they worked at how best to love God and their neighbor, even to the point of giving their lives for both."
Children will find comfort in the beloved stories from the first edition of Saints and Heroes for Kids
â€” Martin of Tours, Brigid, Thomas More, Teresa of Avila, Kateri Tekakwitha, Pierre Toussaint, Maximilian Kolbe, Dorothy Day and Thea Bowman, among others. Kids will find new inspiration in the stories of people of faith recently canonized or recognized for their holiness: Saints Rose Philippine Duchesne, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), Josephine Bakhita and Juan Diego, and modern heroes Pope John XXIII, Damien of Molokai, Mother Theodore Guerin, Solanus Casey, Mychal Judge, and the men and women of 9/11.
