A Story of Saint Lawrence

(2 reviews) Write a Review

St. Lawrence was born in 225 AD and lived during the early years of the Church and experienced the harsh persecution of Christians under Roman Emperor Valerian. To this day, little is known about the details of St. Lawrence's life. However, we do know the Church holds him in high esteem and that his holy example was formative in the early years of the Church.

Stories of St. Lawrence include his direct opposition to Emperor Valerian and his love for the true treasures of Christ's Church, His people. Martyred in the year 258 AD, St. Lawrence proved himself a model of true devotion to Christ and His Church.

St. Lawrence is the patron saint of school children, the poor, and comedians. Your children will enjoy this story of St. Lawrence's life, complete with beautiful illustrations. You will enjoy it too, knowing your children are learning about a model of holiness that we can strive to emulate in our daily lives.

    A Story of Saint Lawrence

    Posted by Lydia Dietz on Dec 19th 2023

    These are wonderful books for children. They tell the lives of the saints in a short & simple way. Martyrs deaths are described but it is muted. The pictures are great. The only complaint I have is the pictures are out of order. For example, a picture that should be on page 10 will be on page 14. It wasn’t a problem for me as an adult but it’ll be annoying when I read it to my niece & nephew.

    Who doesn't know the story of saint Lawrence? It's the other things about him we don't know. This story, suitable to hold the attention of children to adults. A wonderful book to read to young children. Well scripted with a flowing story line. A must for children to begin to learn about the lives of the saints.
