Bring on the new saints!

I’m so excited!  I love the Catholic faith and it’s expression!  We have 7 people being recognized by the Church as being Saints. Let me be clear that saints are made by God, but in time, in review of their life and a bunch of other steps that you can check out at this link, they can be known and venerated by the Church as a whole. We can admire and try to be like these people, because they are  Incredible.  Not because they had something offered to them that we don’t, but because they opened their hearts to the grace that God offers all of us.  In sharing their stories we have the opportunity to do the same.  Here are videos on two of them, who are “from” America.
