Lives of the Great Saints LRP – Updated for 2015

A Lenten Reading Plan

Read about the lives of some of the great saints who lived from the beginning of the Medieval period to the early Renaissance.

Lent is a time of personal conversion and greater participation in the life of the Church.  By reading the lives of the saints, we can find the inspiration and example we need to follow Christ more closely each day in the particularity of our own lives.

The links below are for Wednesday audiences given by Pope Benedict XVI.  The date on the left will help you to keep track of where you are in the reading plan.  The date that is part of the link indicates the day that Pope Benedict gave the talk.  All links go to the Vatican web site.
