First things first, I felt that I needed to start by saying that I am not Catholic, though being Portuguese means that I grew up in a Catholic home. It's almost like tradition for us, most Portuguese are Catholic and you just go into it and follow the family steps.
I did stop following the Catholic faith when I was around 15 years old, so talking about Saints is not something I do every day, but it is something I am aware of and know about.
The Saint a Day devotional, is a year long devotional that tells the story of each saint, what they did, what they are known for. It is such a sweet way to learn about these saints and what they stood for. Some are well known, others I had no clue who they were but it was interesting to browse through and read little tidbits about them.
From Jesus' mother Mary, to Joan of Arc, Mother Theresa and many others.
For example, today's devotional is about Saint Margaret of Scotland and quotes Romans 12:12.
She was so beloved by her Scottish subjects, that she was known as The Pearl of Scotland. She was actually an English Princess and a Scottish Queen.
Whether you are Catholic or Christian, this is such a sweet and interesting devotional, perfect for little ones.
