There are so many resources for learning about the rich heritage of our Catholic saints. To love them, to feel connected to them, we have to learn about their lives. They are human like us, and all have foibles like us, but perhaps, unlike us, they were able to deal with the circumstances in their lives with "heroic virtue." They can inspire us, console us, and intercede for us.
I've placed four good books for learning about saints on the reading list.
Blessed All Saints Day!
