Get to Know Your Neighborhood Saints.
Meet more than a hundred saints, blesseds, and official candidates for sainthood who lived and worked in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Learn more about these "local" men and women -- and children! -- whose examples of holiness prove that personal sanctity is possible right here, right now.
The only collection of its kind, Saints of North America uses a month-by-month format based on the Church's liturgical calendar. Here, for each entry, are:
- A fascinating biography
- The places with which the person is associated
- His or her particular ministry, spirituality, and accomplishments
- The location of a national shrine or headquarters established by those devoted to the saint.
Take a moment to peruse through a few pages, and you are bound to recognize some old "friends." Look a little closer, read a bit more, and you are sure to meet some new ones.
Help your faith come alive as you discover more about your "neighbors" who lived the Faith heroically!
