Publisher's summary

These stories are meant to show human and lovable people whose mysterious passion for God led them into preposterous escapades. With an eye on the taste of a child for concrete detail and no apologies for the embroidery of legend, each tale, in a style akin to fairy-tale, sets forth the unique qualities of a Genevieve, a Felix, a Dorothy, or Comgall-16 real saints brought unforgettably to our attention and admiration.

A surprising favorite!

When I suggested my children listen to this one night at bedtime, I’ll admit their were some groans. My children are not perfect little nuns and monks- they were not excited by saint stories. Come morning they had had quite a change of heart- they were so excited and loved Once Upon A Saint stories. Ethel Pochocki has a gift for story telling. The mini biographies give enough detail to be truly interesting and Inspiring. She makes the saints sound like friends- which they truly should be. I hope more of her books are made into audiobooks!

P.s. To address other reviewers concerns, yes many saints were martyrs, and some of their lives were tragic. But all of their stories give us hope and faith and are inspiring. Also, as far as misattribution, St Alice and St Adelaide are the same person- just different versions of their name.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
