Celebrate the Saints!

In November, Catholics celebrate All Saints/All Souls day. Milwaukee has many churches dedicated to the patronage of saints with feast days in November. Celebrate St. Josaphat on November 12 with John Gurda's wonderful Centennial of Faith: The Basilica of Saint Josaphat, 1888-1988. You could consider the life of St. Martin de Porres on November 3 with the book The Pied Piper of Peru, written by Ann Tompert and illustrated by Kestutis Kasparavicius. Or, you could learn more about St. Charles Borromeo (November 4), St. Catherine of Alexandria (November 25), and many other saints in John J. Delaney's Dictionary of Saints . Also, you could check out this index of saints for info about all the canonized saints and the blessed. My own favorite is, of course St. Jerome, patron saint of librarians!
