Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints
From Aaron to Zoticus --with some 10,000 in between -- here are the Church's "holy ones." These are the men, women, and children whose heroic virtue -- whose example of faith, hope, and love -- proves that spiritual greatness on earth is possible. Here are their lives and their stories, simply, clearly, and accurately told. Updated to include canonizations of the third millennium, Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints, Revised, presents the most comprehensive one-volume listing of saints and "beati" -- the "blessed" who are one step from canonization. Here, too, are explanations of the Catholic Church's teaching on the Communion of Saints and its tradition of veneration as well as alphabetical listings of the biographies of nearly the whole body of those revered as saints throughout the world.
