Abstract:

"The meaning of the word "saint" in Hebrew, Greek and Latin is "holy one". A saint is a person who is considered holy, sanctified or consecrated by means of having lived a life of great charity and heroic virtues. The lives of the Catholic Saints provide ready-made role models for children seeking moral instruction and support. Their stories are an extension of the parables Jesus told to his disciples. Yet, the saints' lives are not abstract allegories; the are the record of what real people did to aid their fellow humans in moving this earth ever closer to the Paradise intended by our Creator. The lives of the saints demonstrate that anyone can be a saint, any place, any time."--Page 4 of cover
