In this updated anthology Ethel Pochocki has selected a mixture of saints and heroes for older youth to read about and emulate. This gathering of holy ones spans ten centuries, yet their circumstances and problems are the same as ours today. The author has chosen a varied selection of saints and heroes, including soldiers and sailors, kings and queens, doctors, lawyers, beggars, thieves, poets, diplomats, and fools.
Beginning with the Mexican Indian, Saint Juan Diego, born in 1474, these 33 chapters include modern men and women, such as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and Jean Vanier, as well as old favorites such as Teresa of Avila, Philip Neri and Francis de Sales. As they spring to life in the pages of this book, the author shows us how human and attractive their lives were, regardless of what centrury they lived their life.
