Saint of the Day (Sixth Edition) - A Book Review

We have recently had the opportunity to review the book Saint of The Day:Sixth Resived Edition through the Catholic Company Reviewer program.
This sixth edition, published in 2009, includes some of the most recent saints and blesseds in the Catholic Church, including, Teresa of Calcutta, Martin and Zelia Guerin, Gianna Beretta Molla and Damien of Molokai.
We have been using this in our homeschool as part of our morning prayer time, when we read the short
biography of the saint of the day. It is a little disappointing that everyday does not have an entry. It is something the kids look foreward too, and when a day is "empty" they feel a little let down.
Also included in each entry is a short comment and quote section pertaining to the saint of the day.
I think this part is my favorite aspect of the book. These comments and quotes offer a great chance to reflect privately on these saints as we go about our daily lives, while we strive to live as the the saints lived.
This review was written as part of the Catholic book Reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Saint of the Day (Revised 6th Edition).
