As Thomas Merton once said, "The only thing necessary to be a saint is to want to be one." This small book of quotations and reflections, gathered from saintly men and women over six continents, representing nearly 2,000 years of Christian thought and prayer, brings one closer to that aspiration over the course of a year. This volume includes extended meditations to complement the words of the saints, themselves. With an entry for every day of the year, author Br. Silas Henderson, O.S.B. provides words of inspiration and wisdom to serve as a starting point for one's own journey of faith, following in the footsteps of saints.
