You Want to Be a Better Person?

Might I suggest reading the Martyrology each day? It is a good reminder of what the faith costs, and yet also a source of hope and strength. Each day's hour of Prime anticipates the martyrology of the next day. For a great Breviary app in Latin and English, by the FFI, click here.

Sigh... You got my hopes up. That app is only for Apple products.

Oh well...

I could not agree more. There is a book entitled Jesuit Saints & Martyrs which has short biographies of every Jesuit Saint, Blessed, Venerable and Servant of God, broken down by feast day. I've written to my Jesuit high school on numerous occasions encouraging them to make it mandatory reading. I'm utterly convinced that more reading of the lives of the saints would lead to a boom in vocations. The saints are very inspirational.
