 Our Description

Jennifer from Texas told us: "This CD isn't just well-done, it's a Godsend. When my kids and I listen to this together, I can't help crying - not just because the product is so good but because the vision behind it is extraordinary. Kids (and whole families) are tasting the JOY of the faith because of these stories coming alive, as they should, in our imaginations and hearts and lives!!"

Another Customer told us:"I think one of the nicest things about Glory Stories is that they begin when these saints were 'just regular people' and show how, little by little, they learned their faith and desired to share it, and God blessed them for that. If I had to pick one work to describe the Glory Stories, it would be "encouraging!"

Allow your children to be inspired by these stories of the lives of the saints. Watch as your children's imaginations are captured as they listen to these professionally produced dramatizations. The Glory Stories tell the true stories of the lives of holy people of God and are catechetical and entertaining (to both children and adults)! Every story teaches a truth of the Catholic Faith and listeners get to know saints who set inspiring examples for youngsters to emulate in their early walk of Faith.

The Saint of the Broom - The Story of Saint Martin de Porres: Known as the Apostle of Charity, patron of social justice, father of the sick and poor, and helper in hopeless cases, Martin also spoke to the animals and worked many unusual miracles.

A Sparrow in God's Hand - The Story of Saint Clare: Inspired by St. Francis and his ideal of holy poverty, Clare left everything to follow Christ. She founded the religious order, the Poor Clares

CD in English only.

    Daughters of a count and countess. Her father died young. After hearing Saint Francis of Assisi preach in the streets, she confided to him her desire to live for God, the two became close friends. On Palm Sunday 1212 the bishop presented her with a palm, which she apparently took as a sign. Clare and her cousin Pacifica ran away from her mother's palace during the night. She eventually took the veil of religious profession from Francis at the Church of Our Lady of the Angels in Assisi.

    Founded the Order of Poor Ladies (Poor Clares) at San Damiano, and led it for 40 years. Everywhere the Franciscans established themselves throughout Europe, there also went the Poor Clares, depending solely on alms, forced to have complete faith on God to provide through people; a lack of land-based revenues was a new idea at the time. Clare's mother and sisters later joined the order, and there are still thousands of members living lives of prayer in silence.

    Clare loved music and well-composed sermons. She was humble, merciful, charming, optimistic, and chivalrous. She would get up late at night to tuck in her sisters who'd kicked off their covers. She daily meditated on the Passion. When she learned of the Franciscan martyrs in Morrocco in 1221, she tried to go there to give her own life for God, but was restrained. Once when her convent was about to be attacked, she displayed the Sacrament in a monstrance at the convent gates, and prayed before it; the attackers left.

    Toward the end of her life, when the was too ill to attend Mass, an image of the service would display on the wall of her cell; thus her patronage of television. She was ever the close friend and spiritual student of Francis, who apparently led her soul into the light.

    16 July 1194 at Assisi, Italy

    11 August 1253 of natural causes

    26 September 1255 by Pope Alexander IV
