In the follow-up to Saints: Lives and Illuminations, detailed portraits and biographical sketches of thirty-six remarkable men and women of the second millennium are accompanied by an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a listing of additional resources, and a glossary.
From Publishers Weekly
This book profiles 34 saints and two blessed (who have been beatified, not yet canonized); each saint receives a full page of coverage that includes an elegantly bordered oil-and-pencil portrait, which occupies about half the space.
Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Elizabeth Anne Seton and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta are among those who grace this volume, which serves as both an interesting read and a spiritual reference. Birth and death dates, feast day and patronage of each saint are included in the individual entries. In addition, an index and glossary of terms at book's end make it particularly user-friendly. All ages. (Jan.)
