When the Saints Seem too Cool for You

Last edited 6th April 2017

Joseph protected Mary and Jesus as they fled into Egypt to escape Herod’s systematic killing of baby boys. Maria Goretti refused to give into an let a man sexually assault her, even when it cost her her life. Jose Sanchez del Rio was brutally tortured and killed for boldly refusing to renounce his faith. Maximilian Kolbe boldly preached the faith in the media and continued to preach during his imprisonment in Auschwitz, where he sacrificed his life for the life of a fellow inmate. Mother Teresa joyfully lived in extreme poverty, while caring for the poorest of the poor and the sickest of the sick. John Paul II was a beloved, charismatic, engaging leader who loved every person he encountered with the love of Christ. These are just a handful of anecdotes from the lives of the hundreds of canonized saints of our Church. We’re all called to be saints — to give our lives fully to God like the saints that have gone before us. Naturally, then, we should look to canonized saints as examples and role models. But how on earth are we supposed to be saints when those who have gone before us have done such remarkable things?

Advice For The Convert: 12 Things To Consider During The Conversion Process

Last edited 6th February 2017

Maybe you’ve attended a course, a retreat, or a workshop; maybe you’ve had an awakening experience through prayer, or a dialogue that stirred in you a profound desire for conversion and to follow Christ in the Church He founded (the Catholic Church). Maybe you are excited and hopeful to build a new and better world, or realize that you need the Sacraments for your own sake. Whatever has brought you this far, reaching out for God’s merciful embrace for the first time is an awesome experience! Nonetheless, there are some things you must know so you don’t get frustrated or feel discouraged in moments when your initial enthusiasm wanes.
