Here's a online resource you are going to want to bookmark: Hagiography Circle

OK, the name doesn't leap trippingly off the tongue but the url says it all: newsaints.

"The Hagiography Circle is a body of young scholars bound by a common interest in “re-telling” the lives of contemporary models of holiness who, within the past seven years, have dedicated some of their time to reading, translating, and reflecting on biographies sent to us by promoters of beatification and canonization causes.

This generosity has enabled us to establish a collection of hundreds of biographies in English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Polish, Latin, Chinese, Hungarian, and other languages, as well as thousands of photographs of these models of holiness."


This site is a treasure trove. You can search by name or year of beatification or canonization from 1800 to the present. You can also find causes begun before 1800 - as early as the 11th century and those who were part of groups of martyrs. There are links to those causes that have their own websites. Google translator is built in as part of the site. The latest causes are listed separately. The whole canonization process and the technical language associated with it is explained.

There is a bit of a learning curve at first (I find the fluorescent color scheme wearing) but this site should be one of your first stops when you are looking for information about saints, potential saints, and the state of their causes. What the site doesn't provide is a detailed biography for each saint or blessed. But it is a great way to locate little known saints, find out how a cause is progressing, and keep abreast of new causes.

HT to Bobby Vidal, who is, a true connoisseur of sanctity.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
