A Work of Art 13 Dec. 2012
By Lisa M. Hendey - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This lovely hardcover book may have been created with children in mind, but it's actually one of the most profound reading experiences this 49 year old reader has had in recent memory. Combining the words of Pope Benedict in a compelling address to English school children and amazing quotes from saints such as St. Thomas More, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Ignatius of Loyola, and St. Francis of Assisi, Be Saints!: An invitation from Pope Benedict XVI is a living work of art. Amy Welborn's astute editorial skills blend perfectly with magnificent watercolor illustrations by Ann Kissane Engelhart to create a message of inspiration and motivation. I'd love to have the ability to frame the pages of this book and hang them in my office as a daily reminder of the call each of us have to be our very best. Buy it to share with the special children in your life, and if you don't have kids buy it because it will enkindle in you a burning desire to pursue your own path to sanctity.

Inspiring For All Ages! 26 Dec. 2012
By Donna M. Cooper Oboyle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Be Saints! is an inspiring beautiful book which encourages children to lead lives of holiness. It offers many poignant quotes from familiar saints, along with an important message from Pope Benedict XVI to youth. While it is clear that this is a children's book, I can see why adults will enjoy it as well. Read it to your child or grandchildren and give it as a gift to help inspire someone to follow their calling to lead a holy life and to be Eternally happy in heaven one day.

This beautifully crafted book is illustrated throughout with stunning water color pictures by Ann Kissane Engelhart which enormously enhances the text by Amy Welborn. Bravo! I highly recommend this book.

Pope Benedict is a great teacher for all ages! 18 Mar. 2013
By mzsb1204 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was greatly impressed by the teachings of Pope Benedict for the young children. I love the Holy Father very much for his wisdom and humility, honesty and sincerity - above all, he is veryChristlike. We are going to miss him, but we know that our Lord has chosen him to make a sacrifice for the good of the church. I bought the book as a gift for my two grandsons, ages 10 and 7 respectively, and they just loved it. They wanted to know more about the Holy Father and his role upon all of us. My grandsons were particularly impressed with the beautiful drawings - the younger one is fond of sketching and it inspired him to do more.

Ditto 15 Feb. 2013
By Java - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The previous reviewer was more eloquent than I am, but I totally agree: this book is beautifully illustrated and inspiring in the quotes, in addition to the succinct but challenging words of Pope Benedict. Definitely one you want to own and look at over and over again!

Words from Benedict XVI 15 Mar. 2013
By Johnna Corin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I used this for my 2nd grade catechism class. They were entranced by what our beloved Benedict XVI was saying to them! I'm always educated by anything he says/writes and this book is no exception.
