Experience the rousing adventures of some of history’s greatest saints. Their lives, depicted here in spectacular graphics, demonstrate that living our true faith is never dull but demands heroic courage and tireless strength.
In these thrilling stories of saintly men and women you will meet:
• St. Willibrord, the bold and fearless missionary priest who converted the people of the Netherlands despite the murderous threats of a hostile pagan king;
• St. Margaret of Scotland, the young noblewoman forced to flee her own country, who found refuge in Scotland, where she became a wise queen devoted to service of the poor;
• St. Stanislaus, the beloved Polish bishop who publicly condemned the vicious actions of his king and was killed for his bold stand against evil;
• St. Rose of Lima, the young girl, admired for her striking beauty, who rejected her parents’ demand that she marry and dedicated herself instead to a life of prayer and service;
• St. Dominic, the brave priest who was staunchly committed to combating dangerous heresies and eventually founded one of the most influential religious orders within the Church.
The glorious examples of these extraordinary men and women offer hope and inspiration, reminding us that, even in the darkest of times, a bold spirit and unwavering faith in God are the main weapons we need to win the strenuous battles of life.

We got the first book in this series for our Goddaughter and every time another holiday or birthday rolls around, she requests the next in the series. This installment lives up to the great artistry and storytelling as the others. She is now 10 and started reading them when she turned 9. A great purchase and gift!
The graphic novel format is a great way to introduce the teeenagers to the saints. The storytelling s great not only visually but also the script behind it. It achieves what it is meant to do: inspire to learn more about the saints. In this time where the is a trend to worship "heroes" I think this is the best way to inspire teenager to get real role models, that get them to Christ.
