Author: from Fr. Alban Butler; Pages: 480; Binding: Sewn Softcover.
This book of nearly five hundred pages 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. A convenient index for ready reference completes this most excellent pious work. If you are looking for a more abridged version of the original Butler’s Lives of the Saints, you have it here.
