  • Lauren Heimann

    I really don’t know who my favorite saint is anymore. I’ve been away from reading about them for a while. St. Thomas More has had an impact on my life, though. He had a great sense of humor, as well as a love for the Latin language, and was an awesome father. I would love to meet him.

  • Mary Kate

    My favorite saint (well, blessed) is Bl. Imelda. I’ve always admired her devotion to and love for Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, so much so that she died of joy at her First Communion!

  • Sam

    My favorite Saint is St. John Vianney, The Cure D’Ars. He’s was (and is) my patron saint from confirmation and his simple love for God and the people he served has always been a inspiration to me.

  • Benoit Meyrieux

    I love St Dominic and St Thomas Aquinas. However lately Padre Pio seems to manifest more in my life!

  • Rachel

    St. Catherine of Siena, for her faith and her political boldness.

  • Erin Hale

    I love St. Elizabeth of Hungary. One of the few married women saints, and a queen! It’s so romantic.

  • Julie Weins Storr

    Wow! What a way to get a saint a day!

  • Beth

    I’m a fellow student at the Augustine Institute, so I’m going to have to go with Augustine 🙂 His dramatic conversion is encouraging, and the wealth of his writings continue to inspire and enlighten.

  • Tomb

    the saints really used this bible? 😉

  • Cam

    The Blessed Mother. I am consecrated to her.

  • Karen

    St. Monica

  • Ryan

    My favorite saints are definitely St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas

  • My favorite saint is St. Francis of Assisi! I grew up surrounded by Franciscans; I guess devotion to this saint rubbed off on me. I love that he was a dreamer and a challenger and a poet and a leader.

  • Jennifer E

    If I had to pick only one Saint to be my favorite… Well, I suppose it would change day to day. The first to come to mind, however, is Saint Maximillian Kolbe. His love for the Blessed Virgin, childhood choice to accepts the crowns of purity and martyrdom (I don’t think I’m saying that quite right), and his passion for evangelization using the “new media” of his day along with his devotion to God and the poor only scratch the surface of his holiness and exemplary life.

  • Marcus Otte

    St. Francis of Assisi. One time, St. Margaret Mary asked Our Lord who, of all the saints, was closest to His Sacred Heart. She was given a vision of the seraphic father, St. Francis. He was a Marian saint par excellence, founder and patriarch of three religious families, and a living image of Jesus crucified- both in his form of life and in the gift of the stigmata.

  • Kim O’Callaghan

    St. Faustina – for sharing the Divine Mercy with us.

  • MrsHudgins

    St. Dymphna is my saint.

  • James C. Elliott

    I’ve been looking for something like this for some time now! What a fantastic resource.
    My favorite Saint is St. Francis — his actively living out what the Bible says is inspiring, as is his respect for nature.

  • Thadeus

    My favorite is St. Joseph. Quiet, faithful, and obedient. Things I want to imitate.

  • Christina Channell

    My favorite saint is Saint Monica. Her faith for her son’s conversion inspires me to have faith for my family as well.

  • Danny

    My favorite saint is Philomena.

  • Di

    I cannot say I have a favorite saint, as there are so many I admire. As I read Mother Teresa did, I say ten Memorares in times of real need or anxiety. After my second child, I understood how the Blessed Mother could love each one of us. The humility off Francis, the basic wisdom of Catherine of Siena, the insights of the Little Flower, the bearing of sufferings by Padre Pio, the conversion of Augustine, how Gianna maintained her faith in this modern world, the beautiful stories of St Anthony etc how can I choose as I learn from them all?

  • Jason

    Always want to low more about the Saints!

  • Gentillylace

    My favorite saint is St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Beneath her sugary surface, she is extremely perceptive how ordinary people can devote their lives to God in their everyday lives.

  • Jeff Walczak

    Favorite Saint: St. Joseph because he is the model father and husband… A true hero.

  • Isaiah

    Besides Mama Maria, I’d have to go with St. Joseph…

  • Corey Swope

    I am always looking for resources to help deepen my faith. This sounds like a great resource.

  • Nedra Davis

    St. Augustine. Give me chastity… just not now…

  • Josh Ramsey

    My favourite Saint is Chrysostom. He’s not called the Golden-Mouthed for nothing, you know.

  • JoAnn Turner

    Bible would come in very handy fo the RCIA and Adult Faith classes I assist with – as well as my personal devotion. I love bringing in Saint quotes as they relate to the Scripture and the Faith!!!! Had not seen this before. Catherine of Siena is a favorite, Padre Pio is a BIG go-to for me. I exhaust St. Anthony daily! Ven. Matt Talbot is a called on daily also to intercede for special people in my life. St. Monica, and the list goes on!!!

  • aslide

    It’s hard to pick one but I really like St. Padre Pio just because of all the amazing miracles he performed.

  • Jay Johnson

    St. Albert the Great is my favorite saint. I chose him as my patron saint when I joined the church. He’s a great combination of philosopher, theologian, and scientist. You can’t beat the accomplishments of his star pupil, either: St. Thomas Aquinas.

  • Greg Cook

    My favorite saint? That is tough, but I will say St. Joseph for his piety, strength and yielded masculinity.

  • Greg Cook

    The saints are such a treasury of God’s wisdom.

  • Amanda Hebert Farnum

    My favorite Saint is St. Gianna because she is such a great example to the modern woman. She was holy, a mother and a working mother. Her dedication to life is also especially moving.

  • Alex R Hey

    Toss up between St. Thérèse and St. Eugéne de Mazenod……they’ve been there for me in the clutch.

  • Jessica Touchet

    My favorite saints are St. Francis of Assisi and St. Therese of Lisieux. I love St. Francis for all of the absolute joy that he has for God and for the Eucharist- his attitude of Humility and Gratitude for everything that came into his life is astounding. St. Therese is another favorite of mine because she was the “ordinary” saint, one who shows all of the rest of us, who aren’t call to great deeds, to live out our lives in love with God using the littleness of our souls.

  • Chris O’Hara

    This looks fantastic! Can’t wait to read about all my favorite saints and put the big picture together with Scripture

  • Donna Eurich

    This would make an awesome addition to my middle school classroom library. My favorite saint is St. Pio

  • K McDonald

    My favorite saint is St Catherine of Sienna….my confirmation saint.

  • Petra

    my favorite is St. Teresa also known as little flower

  • Laura Strietmann

    Looks like an awesome Bible! Would use often!

  • Mario Pineda, Jr

    Fav Saint: St. Augustine. Its a blessing to know that someone could of lived a carefree life as he did and yet was able to turn himself to the Lord and live a holy life. This example gives me much hope when I’m down on myself and I think that I’m heading in the wrong direction.
