Reviews - What do customers think about Saintly Youth of Modern Times?

Good reading  Jul 28, 2006
Great author and interesting stories. There is a lot of overlap between this book and "Young Faces of Holiness" by Ann Ball. I prefer Ball's book which is a little more exciting and gives more bang for the buck, but Cruz's book is a very good read too.
 
Terrific Book  May 21, 2006
What an awesome book! It chronicles the lives of several young people, ages 6-19, who are at different stages in the process of becoming canonized Saints. This book shows that the goal of sanctity is not wishful thinking,or a privilege reserved for a few, but a reality that is attainable even by very ordinary children. It will inspire the young and humble the old. I was especially touched by the courage of each young person in the face of suffering. The book left me exclaiming: Truly, we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. A great gift for anyone (Catholic or not) who wishes to love Christ more deeply and understand the redemptive value of suffering. The book also provides a very helpful explanation of the different titles and stages in the process of Canonization. Absolutely the perfect Confirmation gift.
