Description

Sacrificing physical pleasures and dying for God are two hallmarks of the Christian saints described in this book by Sabine Baring-Gould. Several saints were virgins because they spent their lives on Earth committed to God and living the faith. By focusing on the needs of others they were able to live their lives without becoming victims of temptation.  Many saints were also martyrs and died painful deaths for their love of God.
