Lives of Saints

by Castilino  

One reason why there is a greater demand for biographies (general) and novels, in comparison to lives of Saints, is that the former includes practically the whole life of the person or event. The latter is an 'edited' version of the good things of the individual's life. Perhaps if the biographies of the Saints were written with both the highs and lows of the individual concerned, there'd be more people who'd be attracted to imitate their lives than just pray to them!
