Saints & Festivals: A Cycle of the Year for Young People
Everyone will love this book of stories originally written in 1913! Mother Mary Salome has gone to the lives of the saints and the volumes of church history and gathered a great variety of episodes and adventures. From each month she selected a half dozen saints and an occasional feast of Our Lord or His Mother and tells little tales about them. Each is chosen to illustrate some virtue or excite some well doing. In addition to Christmas, Easter, and the stories of well-beloved saints, children will also discover the stories of lesser-known heroes of the Church such as St. Chad, St. Serapion, St. John the Dwarf and St. Hilda of Whitby. Peppered throughout with the imaginative illustrations of Gabriel Pippet, this volume makes a wonderful resource for children to take part in the yearly cycle of the Church.
