Editorial Reviews

Review

"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."

Review

"Fr. Joseph Tylenda ,SJ, has managed once again to provide his every reader—whether pastoral staff member, lay faithful or Jesuit confrere—with an accessible and informative vita of the Saints and Blesseds celebrated on the universal calendar of the Roman Rite as well as the particular calendar of the Society of Jesus. Tylenda's attention to detail and his inclusion of all of the updated changes to the liturgical calendar in the new Missal of 2002 are impressive. An excellent handbook for parish and home alike. "—Dennis D. McManus, associate director, Secretariat for the Liturgy, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. McDonald on February 15, 2006
Format: Paperback
This is a revised and updated edition of the perennial Georgetown University Press classic, 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.
