A collection of devotional and prayer books about the saints.
Pray to God exactly as the greatest saints did. The words they directed to God, and the directions on praying that they gave to souls, lift us away from worldly concerns and call to mind the great truths of our salvation. But until now, you would have had to have a library full of their writings (and ample time to comb through them all) in order to have access to their prayers. Now: a single volume containing the best of their prayers and counsel. At Prayer with the Saints brings you the most beautiful and powerful prayers ever uttered by these holy souls.
Advent and Christmas with the Saints offers spiritual sustenance from those holy men and women whom we honor because of their close spiritual relationship with God. Readers walk day-by-day with the saints, recalling the Scriptures they read, meditating on the thoughts they had, praying as they might have prayed, and talking openly with God. Christians looking for a way to re-spiritualize their Christmas practices, prayer groups, small-faith communities, Bible study classes, teachers, clergy, and religious will cherish this guide to refocusing on the "reason for the season," the birth of the Messiah.
This collection of prayers of intercession to the saints and blesseds (including a brief biography of each) spans the entire calendar year, highlighting a different saint for each day. The day of each saint is determined by that saint's Church- appointed feast day and/or by the date of death of that partiuclar saint or blessed. Covering the entire Christian Era, with a special emphasis on those men and women canonized and beatified by Pope John Paul II, this is a rich resource for any person's prayer and devotional life.
