Pope John Paul II told us that the fundamental vocation of every baptized Christian is holiness of life. Throughout the history of the Church we are blessed to have the witness of many men and women who have embraced this reality with heroic virtue. They are called Saints.
Our guest maintains that saints are countercultural - heroes and heroines who follow the radical call of the Gospel message and bring the face of Christ to their day and time. Is it possible that God has given you life at this moment in history to do the same? This takes supernaturalized courage, a gift of the Holy Spirit called fortitude. Today, we will meet a saint or few who can help us acquire it.
