The inspiring stories of holy men and women are brought to life in reader-friendly ways.
Catholics around the world rely on the Catholic saints for guidance and inspiration . . . so it's important that the saints and their stories be easy to find. Voices of the Saints by Bert Ghezzi provides readers with many convenient ways to look up 365 Catholic saints: chronologically, alphabetically, by feast day, even by theme. The saint's patronage is also listed when available, as is the date of beatification or canonization.
While the reference possibilities are abundant, the inspiring stories of these saints are still the primary focus of the book, and each entry is written in such a way as to help us feel the companionship of the saint. The voice of each saint comes through clearly in quotations drawn from their own writings, the recollection of witnesses, and the careful work of biographers.
Bert Ghezzi is the author of twenty books, including Voices of the Saints, Mystics & Miracles, and Sacred Passages. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame and currently resides in Winter Park, Florida.

I don’t know many published authors. To be more accurate, I only know one. When I graduated from Florida State University and moved back down to the Orlando area, I met one of my best friends—and mentors, as all good friends are—Catholic author Bert Ghezzi.
Bert has been involved in one form or another with the Catholic publishing business for decades. Though he currently works as the Acquisitions Director for Our Sunday Visitor, he has written twenty books for many publishers with more to come. While many of his books focus on the daily spiritual life as a Catholic or on liturgical topics such as the Sign of the Cross or the Sacraments, some of his most recent books have focused on the Saints of the Catholic Church.
I think it is safe to say that Bert is one of the most knowledgeable “Saint-watchers” in the world, if only here in America. I know of few others who have devoted as much time as Bert to discovering, popularizing, and emulat Full Review...
