    1. Butler's "Lives of the Saints" is without doubt the most highly rated collection of the stories of the Saints in the English language. Written in the early 19th Century by Alban Butler, and English convert to Catholicism, this twelve volume collection was a collection of the stories of the lives of all the Saints that existed at that time. The collection is organized by date, so that the reader can read the lives of all of the saints whose feast days fall upon that particular day. This makes thi [...]

    3. What an amazing Journey in my reading of “Lives of the Saints” by Alban Butler; treasures I will hold in my heart for many years to come teaching me so much about the paved path before me.I was taken by one story; the story of Alban; a man who came to know Christ by the praises of a fugitive; a story that made the words of 2 Samuel 22:50 come to life proving yet again the power of Gods word!I love what Alban said after a flogging "I worship and adore the true and living God, who created all [...]

    4. Father Butler's Lives of the Saints is an amazing book of devotion, arranged to follow the Catholic Church's calendar of feast days, and so is relevant every day of the year. I enjoyed reading and learning about the daily saints, Doctors, and martyrs of the Church in concise, well-written, prose.I highly recommend using Lives of the Saints as part of a daily regimen to deepen one's faith by way of being introduced to inspiring examples of faith.The book, first published in the nineteenth century [...]

    5. Lives of the Saints is a collection of biographies of Saints. There are multi volume editions, though I read a single volume "concise" edition. Even with that It took me about 10 years to finish. At first I would only read the saint of that particular day, evently I wanted to get through it and worked my way steadily from one end to the other. It is always inspiring to read the lives of saints, to hear of ordinary men with extraordinary love for God that draws them into amazing acts of heroism. [...]

    6. Okay, this is not actually the copy I am reading. My friend Paula gave me her mother's copy of "Lives of Saints" which is big, thick and really gruesome. Here's my favorite quote: "The record of the Passion of St. Perpetua, St. Feliciitas, and their Companions is one the the great treasures of martyr literature."The book is on the coffee table, and I read one or two histories at a sitting. I am noticing many virgin martyrs, which counts many of us out. The same does not seem to apply to men, whi [...]

    8. So, my one-year plan to read this book succeeded. I didn't end up reading exactly a-saint-a-day, but I read them all. Many of the stories were inspiring and most were interesting. Some were frustrating -- vigorously condemning heresy is not my favorite reason to elevate someone to sainthood -- and some were great (I'm a huge fan of little Benedict the bridge builder). Lots of common trends -- refusing to be a bishop (but later accepting) seems to be a sure step on the path to sainthood, as does [...]

    9. "10 January (15 January) St. Paul ,The First Hermit, A.D. 342"- Image is Velasquez 1635 St. Paul with St. Anthony because I could not bother with the Bodleian Library's on-line search capability. I recommend this book to Paul.

    10. Butler's Lives of the Saints is the more respected, "academic" history of the lives of saints. Good times here.

    11. InterestingI found this book to be interesting but not being catholic I was amazed at the number of saints even in one month.

    12. Inscribed "Christmas 1992 for the home! Rene". Creased spine. Unmarked inside. Cover differs from linked photo.

    13. I read this for the Confirmation class I'm taking at my church. It was really informative and I enjoyed it.

    14. A beautiful testimony of love (John 14:15). We are indeed surrounded by these recognized faith role-models (Hebrews 12:1): The saints in heaven.
