Holiness comes in all sizes. Sometimes it's the littlest who are the greatest in wisdom and grace. It's the youngest who demonstrate heroic virtue ? faith, hope, and love ? far beyond their years. Now Saintly Youth of Modern Times presents the biographies of more than forty of these amazing individuals from around the globe, including one youngster who died at the age of six! Here are boys and girls who watched cartoons on television, went to school, and enjoyed playing sports with their classmates. Here are young men and women who attended dances, drove cars, and loved chatting on the phone with their friends. Here are Catholics who fully lived the Faith, including some who courageously died for it. Read how these young holy ones faced: Arthritis; back problems; cancer and chemotherapy; eye problems; severe headaches; pneumonia; and more. Ranging from those expected to soon receive the title of Servant of God to those already canonized and declared a saint of the Church, here are young souls whose unwavering love of Christ in the Eucharist ? and devotion to his Blessed Mother ? continue to inspire lives today.
