This newly revised edition of the original classic offers the life and example of one saint for each day of the year. Editor Michael Walsh has culled the rich resources of earlier editions to accentuate the more modern and best documented saints' lives to show the tradition and continuity from the past. This selection features a wide range of nationalities and includes new articles on recently canonized saints. The index offers the list of saints from the complete edition, and includes all new canonizations and new dates, making it the most up-to-date listing of saints available. This excellent distillation of a Christian classic is now made accessible to a new generation of readers.
