All around the world, for two thousand years, holy men and women have followed Jesus with amazing dedication, courage, and creativity. The Saints Pray for Us focuses on thirty beloved saints, presenting them as accessible role models children can relate to. Each 2-page section includes a colorful illustration of the saint; the date of their birth, death and feast day; and a prayer to the saint. Written in a conversational style, the prayers describe how that saint lived and asks the saint's help for the needs of the child's everyday life: with schoolwork, friendships, forgiveness, or discovering how they can make a difference in the world.
Whether it's Mary's great faith, Saint Edith Stein's eagerness for learning, Saint John Vianney's selflessness in service, Saint Katharine Drexel's compassion for all races, John Paul II's courage in difficult times, Saint Faustina Kowalska's certainty of God's mercy or Saint Paul's determination to spread the love of Jesus, these saints hold a timeless relevance.
The Saints Pray for Us concludes with a Litany of the Saints. Young pray-ers are left with the comfort of knowing the saints will pray for them! You’ll want to share this special little prayer book with your child to both teach about the saints and to nurture a life-long friendship with them.
