Before I proceed with this blog I want to take a moment and talk about my “sources”.
Much of the biographical information (rightfully, biographical information for a saint is called hagiographical) comes from a variety of different sources. They include:
- Lives of the Saints by Hugo Hoever
- Lives of the Saints by Alban Butler
The translation of Sacred Scripture in use on these pages is generally the New American Bible Revised Edition (USCCB, 2010) unless otherwise stated.
I’ve also found great assistance in several other websites and apps, particularly iPieta (a $2.99 download in the App Store).
The wit and slant are all mine.
