Pope John Paul II proclaimed an unprecedented number of new saints and blesseds in the 25 years of his pontificate and didn't slow the process, despite the criticism from at least one cardinal that the altars are getting 'a little crowded'. The proclamations were made in a large number of countries, from which the new saints and blesseds have come. This reflects a deliberate policy of strengthening the faith of local churches against the threats from totalitarianism, secularism, Pentecostalism, etc. (the Vatican tends to see most of the 'outside' world as a threat). There has also been a deliberate policy to seek more examples of holiness from outside the ranks of clergy and religious. The twentieth century has been seen as the century of martyrs, largely those of Nazism and Communism, and they feature prominently- those of nominally Catholic military regimes are less favoured. This volume covers a four-year period in Butler's style. Blesseds appearing in the 1995-2000 volumes who have since been canonized have their entries updated and expanded as necessary; new blesseds are featured with as much information as is available on them. The 80+ entries range from 200 to 3,000 words in length.… (mer)

We are transformed by the people we have been transmuted from herein portrayed. A lovely book of stories of places we have been and will forever inhabit. Their stories are our stories. ( )

This is an abridged edition of Butler's four-volume set that sits on our shelves. This volume list one saint for each day of the year. The editor uses the day of their death, which has been restored as the principal occasion for liturgical observance of a saint's life, work, and virtue. The work has also been updated to list those blesseds who have been become saints as of 1956. The reduced number of biographies of the saints in this book has a slight bias to Anglo Saxon saints and the two wholly new saints are from the United States. The editor has also updated the entries and modified the language to modern English, He has also deleted pious exhortations allowing the saints achievements and eccentricities speak for themselves. Though a handy modern catholic beside book, it is no substitute for the original four-volume set. ( )
