 Our Description

 

The Saints and Our Children gives not only a fresh account of some of our most familiar and beloved Saints, but it also draws out the lessons to be learned from their lives. It is therefore not just a book for parents, but is actually excellent reading for all Catholics-and may well be the most interesting Saints' Lives the reader will ever encounter.

 

Mary Reed Newland was a mother of 7 who contributed greatly to the Catholic family revival of some years ago, and today there is a heartening resurgence of enthusiasm for her books. Here she draws remarkable insights from often overlooked details in the lives of St. John Bosco, St. Dominic Savio, St. Maria Goretti, St. Bernadette, St. Therese of Lisieux, etc., and also from the Holy Family itself. In these stories one sees the crucial role of father, mother and upbringing in the lives of the Saints and comes to appreciate the fact that Saints usually spring from good, even if imperfect, Catholic homes and to realize that God relies on parents to raise up His children in purity, obedience, perseverance, charity and the other virtues.

The author goes on to relate some 30 additional great short stories from Saints' lives which teach particular virtues. These include the story of St. Francis of Assisi and the cabbages, St. Patrick and the prince, St. Catherine of Siena's little silver cross, St. Dominic and the devil, St. Perpetua's little brother in Purgatory, Father Damien the Leper's Confession, and many more.

The Saints and Our Children is a book that delivers far more than it would appear to, for besides being a wonderful aid for Catholic mothers and fathers in drawing important lessons from the lives of the Saints, it is also one of the best and most interesting Lives of the Saints that any Catholic will ever read.
