Book Reivew: Saint of the Day

In my opinion, no Catholic home should be without the book, Saint of the Day: Lives, Lessons & Feasts. Unlike so many other Saint books, Saint of the Day contains both well-known Saints such as St Patrick, as well as those we are less familiar with, St Pancras for example. There is about a page devoted to each Saint. That page contains factual information about the Saint's life, a comment by the editor on this Saint, as well as a quote from or about the Saint.

There is not technically a Saint listed for every date of the year, but on average at least half the month is covered. The table of contents is organized into months and days. The index contains the names of the Saints in alphabetical order, as well as the date.

I appreciate the simplicity of the text. The information is not muddled with unnecessary facts or illustrations. The sections are concise enough that it would be easy for any family to add a reading from this book into their daily devotions.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book Reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Saint of the Day (Revised 6th Edition). In exchange for a free copy of this book, I agreed to submit a review on my blog. I have received no other compensation for submitting this review.
