Saints on EarthNick Horton, via The Good Book Stall
Saints on Earth does what it says on the cover! The Common Worship calendar gives provision for no less than 214 saints to be remembered during the year – but who are they? Of course some of them are well known, at least by name, but many others are unfamiliar to us. Who for example knows of Macrina, July 19th? She was eldest of 10 children and among her brothers were Gregory of Nyssa and Basil of Caesarea. This helpful book gives roughly a page to each saint – when they lived, why they are remembered etc.– and sometimes includes a prayer or a verse of one of their hymns. Archbishop Laud’s prayer on going to the scaffold, January 10th, is particularly poignant. The book is packaged with a searchable CD, compatible with Visual Liturgy, so information can be printed on pew sheets or in magazines. The book is particularly useful for those observing the saints days in their daily office of for those churches with a daily Eucharist. Highly recommended.
