Stories Of The Saints: Bold and Inspiring Tales of Adventure, Grace, and Courage by Carey Wallace

Saints are ordinary men and women who touch the world in extraordinary and inspiring ways. Sometimes they prevail, sometimes they come to a tragic end-but always they change the world they live in for the better. In this freshly told and boldly illustrated book, children will find the stories of the best-known and best-loved saints, from Augustine to Mother Teresa (officially canonized as St. Teresa of Calcutta). Meet Joan of Arc, whose faith inspired her to lead an army when the king's courage failed. Francis of Assisi, whose gentleness tamed a man-eating wolf. Christopher, whose medal is often worn by travelers. Valentine, a bishop in the time of ancient Rome who spoke so often of Christ's love that his saint's day, February 14, has been associated with courtly love since the Middle Ages. St. Thomas Aquinas, the great teacher. Peter Claver, who cared for hundreds of thousands of people on slave ships after their voyage as captives. Bernadette, whose vision of Mary instructed her to dig the spring that became the healing waters of Lourdes. Each tale is more vivid than the last; also included in each entry are the saint's dates, location, emblems, and patronage. Taken together, they create a rich and entertaining history of faith and courage.
