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 )

6 editions published in 1957 in 3 languages and held by 364 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 practice of the presence of God by Lawrence( Book )

12 editions published between 1962 and 1985 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the kingdom of God here on earth. It is the art of 'practicing the presence of God in one single act that does not end.' He often stated that it is God who paints Himself in the depths of our soul. We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence. For nearly 300 years this unparalleled classic has given both blessing and instruction to those who can be content with nothing less than knowing God in all His majesty and feeling His loving presence throughout each simple day"--Page 4 of cover

The Catholic Eastern churches by Donald Attwater( Book )

9 editions published between 1935 and 1948 in English and held by 279 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
