Today the saint, as he or she has come to be understood, is essentially a man or woman of heroic virtue due to an intimate union with God. The definition of what this holiness is, as it appears in the Scriptures, is one of the many facets of sainthood which are discussed by the author in this volume. The book also contains the acta and the accounts of lives of later saints for which there is full documentation, together with description of the Church's canonization process and the theology of the Communion of Saints

Saint Paul and the mystery of Christ by Claude Tresmontant( Book )

3 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of this Jew of Asia Minor, this first-century Pharisee, might be called the history of an obsession. The title 'St. Paul and the mystery of Christ' gives the clue to his life. It had one inspiration, one motive, one end: to preach Jesus Christ. Paul even came to regard his own life as valid only insofar as the Christ-life was its driving force, and it was this doctrine that he preached to others

The Catholic Eastern churches by Donald Attwater( Book )

6 editions published between 1935 and 1937 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a presentation, published in the mid-1930s of "the history, religious life, and present state of the Eastern [Catholic] church". The Eastern Catholic Churches are autonomous, self-governing, and in full communion with the Pope. Together with the Latin Church, they compose the worldwide Catholic Church. They preserve some centuries-old eastern liturgical, devotional and theological traditions, shared in most cases with the various other Eastern Christian churches with which they were once associated. Historically, Eastern Catholic Churches were located in Eastern Europe, the Asian Middle East, Northern Africa and India. The terms Oriental Catholic and Eastern Catholic include these, but are broader, since they also cover Catholics who follow the Alexandrian, Antiochian, Armenian and Chaldean liturgical traditions
