All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, is a perfect time to remind children of their friends in heaven: the saints.
“Each one,” Pope Benedict told the faithful, “should have a saint that is familiar to him, to whom he feels close with prayer and intercession, but also to imitate him or her. Hence, I would like to invite you to know the saints better.”
Books provide a wonderful starting point for young readers to become acquainted with these faithful friends and to develop a devotion to particular patron saints.
