Saints can seem remote and distant, close to God but far from people. But theyre more like us than we give them credit for. Their lives were like ours, full of dilemmas and struggles, with bad choices as well as good. But their goodness won out in the end, as ours can. Interest in angels is quite popular at the moment, but it is the saints who are really like us in both their strengths and frailties.
Youll find their stories here, told simply and briefly, with cartoons throughout.
