Saints are not phenomena of the past; they are with us in all eras of the Church's life, for God does not leave His Church bereft of holy witnesses. In this second volume of Modern Saints: Their Lives and Faces, Ann Ball provides brief but substantive biographies on 45 saints, blesseds, and other holy men and women from the past two centuries. Included for each is a portrait, typically an actual photograph—a true blessing for Catholics of our time. This 500-page volume contains the lives and faces of saints including:

  • Catherine Labouré
  • Thérèse of the Little Flower
  • Pius X
  • Jacinta and Francisco Marto
  • Dom Columba Marmion
  • Elizabeth Seton
  • Pauline Jaricot
  • Joseph Cafasso
  • and dozens more!

Let these holy men and women, so close to us in time, bring guidance and encouragement on your earthly sojourn, as we wait to join them in Heaven with God and all of his elect from throughout the ages.

Anne Ball was a Catholic author of the later decades of the 20th century. After earning a degree at the University of Houston, she taught in school and worked in professional security. Her true passion, however, was for writing on the Catholic Faith in all its aspects. She died in Houston, Texas, in 2008.
