If you read one story every day from this two-volume set of books, you will have made many new friends in heaven by the end of a year!

Some saints played soccer or rode horses. Others survived shipwrecks and traveled across continents to tell people about Jesus. Still others stood up for those who were being bullied and bravely worked for justice. Every saint has a unique story to share.

The saints are people who loved Jesus and helped others. They were close to God on earth, and now they are close to him in heaven. The saints are friends of God, and they want to become your friends, too!

This fourth edition of the classic, bestselling, two-volume set of books with saints for each day of the year introduces intermediate readers to saints through their amazing life stories. In print for decades, this classic was primarily written by a much-beloved religious sister, Sr. Susan Helen Wallace, FSP (1940-2013). Sr. Susan Helen considered Saint Thérèse of Lisieux a close heavenly friend, and now they both surely can be counted on to pray for the many young readers of Sr. Susan Helen’s books.

Daughters of St Paul
Some of you may know us online as the “media nuns.” Our sisters were founded in 1915 to spread the Gospel using all forms of media. We came to the United States in 1932 and very soon after began the now well-known and trusted Catholic publishing house, Pauline Books and Media. In the beginning, our sisters ran the printing presses and worked in the bindery to produce books we then sold door-to-door and in our bookstores. We outsource our printing now but our sisters still know the printing business like the back of our hands. We know and love books.
We love to publish beautiful books for people who love Jesus and books as much as we do.
