“Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.” -St. Francis of Assisi
The purpose and plan of this page is simple and straightforward. My deep desire is to share the wisdom, the sufferings, the joys, the trials, the struggles, the hope, and the true example and witness of these holy men and women of God, these saints, with all of you dear brothers and sisters in Christ. They have been steadfast friends, powerful intercessors, and patient mentors. I pray that they will find a way into your hearts, and inspire you to actively seek and desire holiness, and strive for sainthood. We are all called to be saints. Weare all called to become the person that God created us to be; the BEST version of ourselves. It is ok to fail, to make mistakes, and to be human. What matters is that we don’t despair, that we pick ourselves back up, surrender ourselves back to God in trust, and keep on running the race. The saints are human beings, just like you and I, who responded to God with their whole being no matter what the cost. They gave their ALL out of love for God, for the glory of God, and for the salvation of souls. Mediocrity is not an option. Our best effort is expected, and our salvation depends on it! The richness of our Catholic faith is vast, with a depth and beauty that FAR surpasses our tangible, material reality. In that spirit, there will also be posts that survey and delve into Catholic teaching (Magisterium), touch upon a multitude of issues and topics related to the faith, and even introduce many prominent Catholic figures and personalities (past and present).
At the end of the day, I am just a girl who is very much in love and on fire for her faih. My only desire is to spread that joy that I have found, with each soul that I encounter. Make today count for eternity!
“The saints are those who struggle right to the end of their lives: those who always manage to get up each time they stumble, each time they fall, and courageously embark on their way once more with humility, love and hope.” -St. Josemaria Escriva (The Forge, 186)
