Books About the Saints

Fr. Nicholas Wichert

As we read about the lives of the saints we see how our faith is put into action on a daily basis as they sought to live out the faith in heroic fashion. The Saints are not however the only ones who can live such lives. In fact, Vatican II reminded us that we are all called to live the life of a saint. Each and every one of us is called to live that life, even if we think internally that we are the least likely to be able to do so.

Here are a list of books on the lives of some saints that can help to inspire us.
