I've had The Fransican Saints on my wishlist for some time. Now, to own it is a treasure for me because it covers the stories of real people who devoted their lives to Jesus and to humanity.
It's a comfortable read, in that you can open the book at any point, for just a few moments or longer, and feel inspired.
What an find, it is an awesome book and an amazing Christmas gifts. Everyone loved reading about the Saints especially those who are less known.
This book is so good I ordered two for gifts for friends that are about to make the profession to the Secular Franciscans.
