Reviews - What do customers think about Patron Saints: Catholic Cardlinks?
Great Aid for Learning About Saints Jul 14, 2006
My mother saw these Catholic Cardlinks talked about on EWTN and asked me to order some. I have to say, I was very impressed by them. The "Patron Saints" Set tells the life stories of many of our most popular saints such as St. Anne, St. Francis, and St. Therese. There are also less well-known saints including St. Albert the Great, St. Erasmus, and St. Rocco. Each card also features the feast day for that saint and what he or she is patron of.
The "Saints" cards illustrations are simple in style but have an appealing aspect to them. I believe that these cards were designed for children but they are very informative for adults as well. This is a wonderful way to be introduced to some new role models.
