Holiness comes in all sizes. Sometimes the very small are the greatest in wisdom and grace. Sometimes, the very young demonstrate heroic virtue -- faith, hope, and love -- far beyond their years. Now, Saintly Youth for Modern Times presents the biographies of more than forty of these amazing individuals from around the globe, including one youngster who died at the age of six! Here are boys and girls who watched cartoons on television, went to school, and enjoyed playing sports with their classmates. Here are young men and women who attended dances, drove cars, and loved chatting on the phone with their friends. Here are Catholics who fully lived the Faith -- and some who courageously died for it.Read how these young holy ones faced:ArthritisBack problemsCancer and chemotherapyEye problemsSevere headachesPneumonia... and moreFrom those expected to soon receive the title of Servant of God to those already canonized and declared Saints of the Church, here are young souls whose unwavering love of Christ in the Eucharist -- and devotion to his Blessed Mother -- continue to inspire lives today.Author: Joan Carroll CruzFormat: 288 pages, paperbackPublisher: Our Sunday VisitorISBN: 159276004X

Volumes of books can be written and hundreds of witnesses can be brought forward to testify either for or against the candidate's supposed heroic virtues. And even then, sainthood is not immediately forthcoming, for God must then give the final approval of the candidate's authentic holiness by way of two intercessory miracles involving the invocation …
