I received this for my Confirmation. I honestly did not think I would read it because I thought it was more of a "picture book". I started reading it because 101 Saints was so disturbing with it's propaganda and old teachings I wanted to read something more up to date. I'm really glad I got this book for Confirmation. It only gives a little information about the saint (so 101 Saints still has it's purpose as it gives you more information) but it is actually worth reading and very informative! (Without being judgmental and sprouting opinions and propaganda.) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810954990, Hardcover)

Every Catholic saint, local and liturgical, is honoured on a particular day of the year. In many cases, an order of precedence has been worked out to determine which saints are most important. In "Saints", Rosa Giorgi has chosen up to three saints for every day of the year, along with representations of those saints ranging from world-famous works of art to more modern depictions. From a wide variety of sources, Giorgi has composed a short explanation of each saint to accompany the illustration, including etymology of names, historical background, occupations, cities and countries of patronage. Although many well-known saints are depicted, including Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc and Thomas Aquinas, some relatively obscure saints are pictured as well.

Portrays more than 375 Catholic saints, arranged by the days of the year on which each is honored. The images range from world-famous works of art by such masters as Caravaggio, Rubens, Velazquez, and El Greco to more modern and lesser-known depictions. Author Giorgi has chosen up to three saints for each day of the year and has composed a brief accompanying description of each, including etymology of names, historical background, and patronage. Encompassing angels and abbots, mystics and martyrs, priests and prophets, virgins and visionaries, the portraits in these pages will inspire Catholics and fascinate scholars and art historians.--From publisher description.… (more)
