Product Overview

This wonderful new compilation of devotional art, brought to you by the authors of "Holy Cards," combines the collectible, portable charm of holy cards with the humanistic appeal of saints.
From the thousands of Catholic saints, authors Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua have chosen more than 120 beatified figures, all beautifully portrayed on antique holy cards. The book is organized into five sections, with representations of patrons of nations, occupations, health, states of life, and nature, so that readers can find a saint with personal relevance. Each rare holy card is accompanied by a brief text explaining the connections, both allegorical and visual, between the saint and the patronage. Many Catholics have a favorite saint who guides, comforts, or inspires, making this book a perfect and personal gift for Christmas or communion, but even casual readers will be intrigued by the storiespowerful, fantastic, and often harrowingof these holy people.
