The Saints and the Call to Friendship with Christ features the stories of 101 different Saints, Blessed and Venerable from around the world and throughout the history of the Church. Each story focuses in on one particularly story feeling that this saint experienced. Through the story it becomes clear Christ used this feeling to call them into friendship and make them a saint.
This book grew out of one seed of truth: no matter what you are feeling or experiencing, a saint felt or experienced something similar, and Christ used that very thing to make them a saint. St. Teresa of Avila's definition of Sainthood. A Saint is simply a friend of Christ. Each friendship with Christ is totally unique, but Christ will make us saints through this friendship.
Perfect way to form your children in the faith because through these stories children will be able to see the Faith lived out. Great for children of all ages. It is a perfect read-aloud book for young children, and an engaging read for older kids.
