About this deal

At first I would only read the saint of that particular day, evently I wanted to get through it and worked my way steadily from one end to the other. Each entry is approximately one page long and is complimented with a reflection on a particular saint. There are summaries of his (and sometimes her) major writings, miracles wrought by means of the saint's relics and an exhortation to imitate his or her virtues. Written in the early 19th Century by Alban Butler, and English convert to Catholicism, this twelve volume collection was a collection of the stories of the lives of all the Saints that existed at that time. The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs, and Other Principal Saints Compiled from Original Monuments and Authentic Records In Twelve Volumes Rev.

His parents were Methodists who became Anglicans while Attwater was a child and he himself became a Catholic at the age of 18. Some major entries include: Aidan of Lindisfarne, Ambrose, Anselm, Antony of Egypt, Bernadette of Boniface, Columba of Iona, Cuthbert, Don Bosco, Francis Xavier, Hildegard of Bingen, Teresa of Avila and Thomas Becket. Butler's Lives of the Saints is written in a very direct manner, and the words allow the great expanse of God to accompany you as you live and strive to be like one of these plain heroes. I am able to highlight and make notes on those passages that speak to my soul an change highlights and add to current notes or create new ones as read about that life a year later. Butler's daily readings from the lives and works of the saints offer readers of all backgrounds the opportunity to engage directly with these great figures.It was at Douai that he began his principal work The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs and Other Principal Saints. Two major changes mark this revision: First, it has been updated in accordance with the revised Roman Martyrology of the Congregation for Divine Worship in Rome.

First written in the mid-eighteenth century, Alban Butler's Lives of the Saints is now available in a four-volume set which was revised in 1956 to include 2,565 saints compared to the original 1,486. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Many saints, indeed some very well known and popular ones, took their first steps toward a life of heroic virtue by reading or hearing the lives of other saints who went before. The book, first published in the nineteenth century, also serves as a valuable introduction the early history of the Catholic Church and the fundamental (and sacrificial) roles some of the founders of the church played to ensure the continuation and development of the Church into modern times.We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. Saints, the popular heroes and heroines of every age, also have an importance beyond the inspiration they provide. It is on this account we have ventured to designate The Lives of the Saints an historical supplement to the Old and New Testaments. I learned that suffering with the joy of the Lord makes your faith in God stronger and you become a Christ like example to others. I have been reading these 4 books daily for about 30 years and have learned a tremendous amount of history of my Catholic faith.
