Revised and updated edition of the perennial Georgetown University Press classic, "Saints of the Liturgical Year", this beautiful and comfortably sized guide is compact, but brimming with information. This edition includes over 260 brief biographies, including 33 new entries, as well as a glossary of terms to help explain the theology of the Roman Catholic Church. Based on the General Roman Calendar, presently in use in the Roman Catholic Church, it also includes the feasts, Saints, and Blesseds from the Liturgical Calendar of the Society of Jesus - known as the Jesuits - as officially observed within the Society of Jesus. Offering inspiration and encouragement, "Saints and Feasts of the Liturgical Year" functions as an aid in introducing the faithful to the day's feast or to the saint whose memorial is being celebrated. As a gift, for personal or group study, and helpful for introducing parishioners to the history of the church, this book can also be used as a source of ideas for all pastors.

Joseph N. Tylenda

Joseph N. Tylenda, SJ, is director of the Woodstock Theological Library at Georgetown University, and the author of Jesuit Saints and Martyrs; and editor of A Pilgrim's Journey: The Autobiography of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

"For each day of the Liturgical Year, Joseph Tylenda has given us a brief readable, and insightful history and commentary on the saint of the day or the feast of Our Lord or Our Lady being celebrated. Chesterton remarked that sinners are all pretty much the same but saints are wildly different. As we note the wide variety of histories of saints that we celebrate each year on their feast days, we meet widows, martyrs of all ages, sexes, and nations. We meet ex-soldiers, scholars like Thomas Aquinas and Albert the Great, kings and farmers. There is Monica and her son Augustine. We find those who founded schools and those who helped the poor. The variety is astonishing. Fr. Tylenda's comments are always worth reading as we are reminded of our long and meaningful Christian tradition of prayer and worship."
