    Product Description

    This October volume is part of a complete revision of "Butler's Lives of the Saints". It comes in 12 volumes which correspond to the months of the year.;How to live a Christian life of faith is a question every generation of Christians has sought to answer. Invariably, they have turned to the lives of the saints. They offer inspiration, hope and a clear challenge to all Christians.;Saints, the popular heroes and heroines of every age, also have an importance beyond the inspiration they provide. Numerous conferences and publications testify to the increased attention being given to their lives as richly documented sources for the study of social and cultural, as well as religious history.;This is the first revised edition since the major Calendar reform of 1969-70. It is based on the new "Roman Martyrology" being finalized by the Congregation for Divine Worship. There is a more worldwide emphasis, resulting in more expanded coverage of saints from all continents.;There is also in-depth historical and contextual background on major saints, and the inclusion of many new saints and the blessed from recent decades. Some major entries include: St Theresa of Lisieux, St Bavo, Bd Francis of Pesaro, St Thomas of Hereford, St Francis of Assisi, St Bruno, Our Lady of the Rosary, St John Leonardi, St Wilfrid, St Edward the Confessor, St Callistus I, St Teresa of Avila, St Ignatius of Antioch, St Luke, St Paul of the Cross, St Fintan of Taghmon, St John of Capistrano, St Antony Mary Claret, The Forty Martyrs of England and Wales, St Cedd, Bd Contardo Ferrini, SS Simon and Jude and Ethelnoth of Canterbury.
