The idea for this book was conceived because of the reactions of a group of my [fifth-grade] students to a photograph of St. Therese the Little Flower. After making many references throughout the year to her and to her 'Little Way,' I brought to class a photo of St. Therese in her wheelchair. Comments ranged from 'Where are the roses?' to 'You mean she was real?'.. . Immediately I began to search for more photographs to 'prove' that the saints were real." (From the Author's Preface). Modern Saints-Their Lives and Faces, Book Two contains the life stories of 45 saints, beati and other holy people of the last 200 years, along with their pictures, the majority of which are actual photographs. These pic-tures alone make the book unique and an invaluable record of sanctity in our own time. Included are the Cure of Ars, St. Catherine Laboure, St. Therese of the Child Jesus, Pope St. Pius X, Jacinta and Francisco Marto, Dom Columba Marmion, Matt Talbot, Edel Quinn, 131. Katherine Drexel, St. Elizabeth Seton, Pauline Jaricot, BI. Elizabeth of the Trinity, Sr. Josefa Menendez, St. Joseph Cafasso, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, St. Vincent Pallotti, Therese Neumann, and many, many more. Modern Saints, Book Two presents the lives of saints from the 19th and 20th centuries; many of these are already famous in the Catholic world. This amazing book will demonstrate the perpetual vitality of the Roman Catholic Church and will strongly convey the idea that there are surely people living today-perhaps right in our own midst-who will one day be canonized saints.
