This devotional guide commemorates the saints universally honored in the Roman Catholic Church. Father Pennington has written an insightful Introduction which illuminates the spiritual graces we can experience when meditating on and praying with the saints throughout the year. The entries are arranged chronologically, corresponding to the feasts observed at weekday liturgies. Pennington opens each one with a brief note on the saint's life or role in the Church. There follows an excerpt by or about the saint drawn from the saint's life, writings, or spoken words. The author invites us to begin to walk with the saints. "Get to know them better," he suggests, and "listen to them speak to us here now through these, their recorded words." To further assist us, Pennington offers a Select Bibliography of works on the saints. This unique compendium can be used year after year for private use, parish use, worship, and study. For all who seek a clearer understanding of the feast days and their relevance in our lives, it is a welcome spiritual aid. Through the Year with the Saintswill enhance our friendship with the company of the saints.

One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of the Year — Winner of a Christopher Award — Winner of a Catholic Press Association Book Award Meet some surprising friends of God in this warm and wonderful memoir James Martin has led an entirely modern life: from a lukewarm Catholic childhood, to an education at the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to ministry as a Jesuit priest, to a busy media career in Manhattan. But at every step he has been accompanied by some surprising friends—the saints of the Catholic Church. For many, these holy men and women remain just historical figures. For Martin, they are intimate companions. "They pray for me, offer me comfort, give me examples of discipleship, and help me along the way," he writes. The author is both engaging and specific about the help and companionship he has received. When his pride proves trouble­some, he seeks help from Thomas Merton, the monk and writer who struggled with egotism. In sickness he turns to Thérèse of Lisieux, who knew about the boredom and self-pity that come with illness. Joan of Arc shores up his flagging courage. Aloysius Gonzaga deepens his compassion. Pope John XXIII helps him to laugh and not take life too seriously. Martin's inspiring, witty, and always fascinating memoir encompasses saints from the whole of Christian history— from St. Peter to Dorothy Day. His saintly friends include Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Mother Teresa, and other beloved figures. They accompany the author on a lifelong pilgrimage that includes stops in a sunlit square of a French town, a quiet retreat house on a New England beach, the gritty housing projects of inner-city Chicago, the sprawling slums of Nairobi, and a gorgeous Baroque church in Rome. This rich, vibrant, stirring narrative shows how the saints can help all of us find our way in the world. "In a cross between Holden Caulfield and Thomas Merton, James Martin has written one of the best spiritual memoirs in years." —Robert Ellsberg, author of All Saints "It isn't often that a new and noteworthy book comes along in this genre, but we have reason to celebrate My Life with the Saints. It is earmarked for longevity. It will endure as an important and uncommon contribution to religious writing." —Doris Donnelly, America "An account . . . that is as delightful as it is instructive." —First Things "In delightful prose Martin recounts incidents, both perilous and funny, that have prompted him to turn to the saints, and in doing so shows us a new way of living out a devotion that is as old and universal as the Church." —Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ, Fordham University "An outstanding and often hilarious memoir." —Publishers Weekly "Martin's final word for us is as Jungian as it is Catholic: God does not want us to be like Mother Teresa or Dorothy Day. God wants us to be most fully ourselves." —The Washington Post Book World

This book introduces a saint for each day of the year--ordinary people who made the choice to love Jesus and give their lives to him. These stories, prayers, and suggestions for becoming holy are designed with our needs and our lives in mind. But this is not your ordinary "Book of Saints." Each day's reflection is designed to inspire and challenge you to become who God intends for you to become. We can do this. But we need the help of the saints!
