Book Description

The Life and Prayers series combines professionally researched and written biographies of iconic Christian figures with an anthology of prayers.

The Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints: Volume I combines the stories of Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Anthony of Padua.

Saint Anthony of Padua followed Saint Francis’ Order. The two were contemporaries, though they only met a few times. How were the two saints similar and how were they different?

Saint Francis of Assisi is quite possibly the most popular of all Christian saints. Perhaps it is his adoration for all living things or his unrelenting generosity that has made so many people open their hearts to him. Perhaps it is the deep conviction and piety expressed not only by the saint himself, but in his name, in the Franciscan orders throughout the centuries.

For centuries Saint Anthony of Padua, Thaumaturgist, Evangelical Doctor of the Church, has been regaled and venerated as a wonder-worker, eminent theologian, and preacher. To him infertile women, sailors, the poor, seekers of lost articles, to name a few, have prayed to intercede. Thousands upon thousands flocked to hear him preach, and witnessed his miraculous deeds.

We hope that with this book, the reader might realize an invitation to call upon both miraculous men, in a quest to find a renewed and challenged faith, hope, and love.

This edition has a linked Table of Contents and has been wonderfully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your eBook reader.

You can purchase additional religious works directly from Wyatt North Publishing.

Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Wyatt North for your books December 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a catholic I'm glad that Wyatt North is publishing the biography of the Church Saints. This is a well written book, with an excellent introduction and a very handy interactive table of contents. It is inspiring to read the biographies of this two powerful saints that left an unforgettable mark In the history of the Church. The contrast between the humble Francis and the miracles worker St. Anthony is fascinating to read. I highly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations.

Another great book by Wyatt North! I find it important to learn about common people who have done extraordinary efforts in their lives to serve others, especially those in great need. It helps one keep focused in an otherwise material and relativity-filled world. Thank you, WN!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 of the Church's Greatest Saints December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints: Volume I (Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Anthony of Padua)gives us the biographies of two of the Church's greatest saints in a book that is comprehensive but still quick and easy to read.Both lived lives of austerity and simplicity that are still examples for us today in a world where we are constantly advised that we need a newer and better version of everything we own.

They were contemporaries, St. Francis (1182-1226) was founder of the Franciscan order and St Anthony (1195-1231) joined the Franciscan order in 1220. Besides giving us the details of their lives as preachers, teachers, and miracle workers the book also gives us a glimpse of their childhoods and families.

The book contains prayers written by both saints and prayers to them. The prayer Instrument of Your Peace by St Francis is one of the most widely quoted prayers ever. And of course everyone prays to St Anthony when something is lost.
This is another excellent book by Wyatt North.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good intro to saints February 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a non-Catholic the lives of the traditional saints are not well known to me, even thought their names and vague reputations are. This filled in the gaps a bit for me, especially for Francis. The process and validity of the canonization process,especially in the far past, is still strange to a modern Protestant but this was a good
Primer on some of the ways it was done long ago.
