This lovely little book of saints, 73 of them, each introduced by way of a few lines of biography and a short prayer (or, in a few cases, several prayers) taken from the saint's writing, includes over 80 prayers that are inspirational words fit for a calendar (or a computer screen) as a thought for the day. There are flashes of humor, moments of poetry, and memorably direct comments on human existence in ordinary and extraordinary situations. The collection covers almost 2,000 years and an impressive variety of saints from the obscure to the familiar, and it will certainly find a significant audience among Christians seeking spiritual inspiration, and--given the depth of humanity exposed in these brief selections--may appeal to spiritual seekers in other traditions as well.
