 Our Description

 

Father Butler's famous LIVES OF THE SAINTS ranks only after the Bible, the Missal and The Imitation of Christ as the all-time most popular and authoritative Catholic book. The material in this handy one-volume edition is taken from the tomes of the highly revered Father Alban Butler (1710-1763), an English Catholic priest and scholar who devoted almost 30 years of meticulous research to the lives of the Saints and whose work was originally published in the 1750's. This present edition contains no editing by Donald Attwater or Fr. Herbert Thurston, ST, as do many othereditions; thus it conveys Fr. Butler's spirit of profound faith in and reverence for our saintly traditions. Additional saints have been added, however, who have lived since Fr. Butler's time-these include St. Therese the Little Flower; Pope St. Pius X, St. Catherine Laboure and others. Yet the book is still based on the traditional Catholic calendar (as of 1955).

 

Giving approximately one page per Saint, plus a brief Reflection based on the virtues of the Saint of the day, Lives of the Saints is extremely valuable to read daily in order to put oneself in tune with our holy Catholic traditions and to develop a truly Catholic approach to life. Included here are the feast days of canonized Martyrs, Confessors, Virgins, Popes, Bishops, etc., plus holy days like the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (September 8), the Assumption (August 15), the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (September 14), and many other feasts.

This book fills a real need and is being published after numerous requests. It exemplifies many holy lessons that the Saints have to teach present generations of Catholics, showing the fruits of the Catholic Faith as borne out in the lives of its greatest adherents.

St. Catherine Laboure

St. Catherine Laboure Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 11/28
Tridentine Calendar - 12/31


Patron Of: Miraculous Medal

Profile
    Ninth of eleven children born to a farm family, and from an early age felt a call to the religious life. Never learned to read or write. Forced to take over running the house at age eight after her mother died and her older sister joined the Sisters of Charity. Worked as a waitress in her uncle's cafe in Paris. Upon entering a hospital run by the Sisters of Charity she received a vision in which Saint Vincent de Paul told her that God wanted her to work with the sick, and she later joined the order, taking the name Catherine.

    On 18 July 1830 she had a vision of Our Lady who described to her a medal which she wished struck. On one side it has the image of Our Lady, and the words, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee"; on the other are the hearts of Jesus and Mary. Our Lady told Catherine that wearers of the medal would receive great graces, it has become known as the Miraculous Medal, and its wearing and devotion has spread worldwide. Miracles reported at her tomb.
