Down through the ages, from time to time, souls are born
who are perfect
who are destined to walk among us
who elevate and glorify those whose lives they touch.
Hilda Charlton believed that these "saints" are not elusive myths, but real forces with the power to heal, inform, and change our lives. Saints Alive is an extraordinary collection of Hilda Charlton's teachings on these "perfected beings, who give up their place in heaven to come to earth and help us." For Hilda Charlton, sainthood derived not from conventional religion, but from a spiritual life fully lived. Here are real-life figures who, by their timeless presence in people's lives, continue to perform miracles for us.

In 12 inspirational sessions, she introduces you to her personal saints ... brings them to life ... and guides you into their mysteries. You will meet St. Therese of Lisieux, whose "little way" of accomplishing everyday tasks with deep reverence reverberated throughout the world ... Holy Lady Ammal, a tiny peasant woman from Sri Lanka whose name is still revered for the miracles it brings, and many others. Now, through Hilda Charlton's luminous words and vibration, these miraculous beings can come into your life, too. Comes complete with set of 14 saint cards.

Explore the lives and miracles associated with 12 unique saints, including St. Joan of Arc, Pericles, Jesus, Our Lady of Fatima, Krishnamurti, Sri Nityananda, St. Martin de Porres, Sai Baba, Sri Ramakrishna, St. Colette, George Washington Carver, St. Therese of Lisieux, and Holy Lady Ammal.

I have loved "Saints Alive" for many years. I often turn to it for refuge or guidance. I was very surprised that the cassette version had such an enormous impact on me. The vibration of Hilda's voice truly brings these greats saints alive and into the room with you. Her devotion is felt in a way which the book could never communicate. It should be required listening for anyone on a spiritual path.

Format: Paperback
Saints Alive is a transcription of classes held by Hilda Charlton in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City between 1976 and 1987. In this book Hilda speaks of saints, masters and other divine beings that were an important part of her life. These classes were a source of spiritual inspiration and a gift of love by the auther, who shared her experiences, knowledge and accomplishments in an informal manner with hundreds of people that gathered for these weekly meetings. She addressed the public with a conversatoinal style using a language that varied from sublime, to poetic to colloquial. Hilda's message was never preached with superiority or in judgement. Her quest was to be an instrument or channel of God's love and truth. Hilda accomplished what she set out to do leaving an extraordinarty legacy for all humanity to partake of.

Hilda is a remarkable woman. I have ordered every book i could find on her, & by her. Saints Alive is one of my favorites. She had relationships with many great teachers & imparts the power of their lives & work very personally. She shares them in a way that makes them Alive to the reader. Pioneers of the Soul is another wonderful book by her.

I loved this book. It took me forever to read it because I didn't want it to end. I read a page or two a day and just thought about it during the day and tried to incorporate her thoughts and teachings into my day. She helped me focus more on the present and stop negetive thoughts from penetrating too deeply. I wish I had known her.
