Description: 

The Catholic Church has existed in the United States since the country’s earliest history. Catholics continue to contribute to American religious life up to the present day. Consequently, several American Catholics have been considered for sainthood over the past 500 years. Most of these Americans were born after 1850.

 

All people are potentially saints by God’s grace, but the Church recognizes in a special way particular men and women who have exhibited holiness in life to an exemplary degree.

 

In this full-color book children will meet the figures of ten beautiful flowers of the North American holiness as well as the Immaculate Conception of Mary, patroness of the United States. The American Saints of this book are:
St. Isaac Jogues
St. René Goupil
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
St. Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton
St. John Neumann
St. Rose Philippine Duchesne
St. Katharine Drexel
St. Mother Theodore Guéri
St. Kateri Tekakwitha
St. Marianne Cope
The Immaculate Conception – Patroness of the USA

 

“The Saints are not supermen, nor were they born perfect. They are like us, like each one of us. They are people who, before reaching the glory of heaven, lived normal lives with joys and sorrows, struggles and hopes.”

Pope Francis
