Book review: Anne: The Life of Venerable Anne de Guigné
Anne: The Life of Venerable Anne de Guigne (1911-1922) by a Benedictine nun of Stanbrook Abbey (121 pages).
The life of Anne de Guigné is not a very familiar story, yet it is one of the most beautiful stories about a child saint. Anne, born in 1911, was the oldest of four children. She was not a perfect child, but her First Holy Communion at age 5 set her on a path to holiness. Until her death at age 10, she dedicated her life to God, striving to serve Him at every opportunity. Many miracles are attributed to this young saint who was found to be incorrupt in 1933. This is a beautiful retelling, for both children and adults, of Anne’s struggles and triumphs along her journey to Heaven.
