Modern Saints: Their Lives and Faces Book One

The idea for this book was conceived because of the reactions of a group of my [fifth-grade] students to a photograph of St. Therese the Little Flower. After making many references throughout the year to her and to her 'Little Way,' I brought to class a photo of St. Therese in her wheelchair.

Wonderfull lives, that is wonderfull collection of biographic essays. I can't remember which saints seemed particularly impressive to me, except the ones who happened to be placed near the end of the book. After reviewing the table of contents I will name a couple of the most interesting: Saint Charles Lwanga and his companions is an excellent story, I think, for catachumens; the tale of the Venerable Charles de Foucauld is a wonderful tale of conversion of life.

Many interesting and edifying biographies of saints, blesseds, and others. The edition I have (not sure if it's been updated) has some in it who have since been beatified or canonized, though were not at the time, and probably some who still haven't. Still edifying reading material - good to read one biography a day for spiritual reading.
