Mary, help of Christians, and the fourteen saints invoked as holy helpers; with instructions, legends, novenas, and prayers, with thoughts of the saints for every day in the year. Based on the Catholic doctrine of the veneration and invocation of the saints, and of the efficacy of the prayers of intercession. The legends of the individual “Holy Helpers” were compiled by authors whose writing have the approval of the Church.
Nothing is more consoling and comforting than the assurance that in the saints of heaven we have powerful protectors and advocates with God. Through their intercession they obtain for us from Him the grace to lead a virtuous life and to gain heaven.
In compliance with the decrees of Pope Urban VIII of 1625, 1631, and 1634, the compiler formally declares that he submits everything contained in this little book to the infallible judgment of the Church, and that he claims no other than human credibility for the facts, legends, and miracles related, except where the Church has otherwise decided.
