Publisher's Description

Most books about the saints are thin on women, especially contemporary women. Even Butler's LIVES OF THE SAINTS, the 'bible' of this category, lists far more men than women. No book about the saints could ignore such beloved early martyrs as Agnes of Rome and Lucy of Syracuse but this new book will introduce readers to many new women who have been canonized or beatified by Pope John Paul II. Of the more than 377 women mentioned in the book, 159 have been canonized or beatified since 1979. Approximately 100 of them lived in the twentieth century.

This new book is also unique in that it uses the saint's own words wherever possible, taking advantage of newly discovered archives, memoirs and other primary sources. It will contain resources such as internet shrines and other websites, as well as little–known information on the canonization process.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sarah Gallick

Submitted: March 22, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have written about many celebrities, from Oprah to Ronald Reagan, but the saints have led the most interesting and inspiring lives of all.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To find out what makes a great saint. The answer is simple: faith in God.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  That we are all called to be saints. God has a unique plan for every one of us and in fulfilling it, we too will become part of the Communion of Saints.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The lives of the saints are a continual source of inspiration.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Many wonderful writers have praised The Big Book of Women Saints, including Father Benedict Groeschel, Father George Rutler, and Susan Crimp who called it "a diary of daily inspiration for everyone."
