    With one saint for each day of the year, this volume is a selection from the 2,500 entries in the full edition of Butler's work. It gives simple factual presentations of the saints' lives, showing how they worked for the good of their fellow men and women, and illustrating the words of Alban Butler himself: in saints' lives 'we see the most perfect maxims of the gospel reduced to practice'. This is a revised and updated version of Butler's Lives of the Saints: New Concise Edition (2003).
