We Need Saints…

Whose lives tell a Christmas story.

Saints who have felt the dirt of the tomb and have been rinsed in the light of Easter.

Saints whose souls magnify the Lord.

Who are overcome with robust laughter and authentic sorrow.

Whose lives make sense of reality.

Who hope beyond hope.

Who really spend their lives.

Who commit wholeheartedly.

Who are unafraid to fail.

Who trust in God’s mercy.

Who know their worth as God’s child.

We need saints who weep at the Beautiful in the grocery store and while mowing the lawn and discover the Paschal Mystery right there.

    We need their faces!
    The Incarnation, Paschal, Marian TKO sets up a WHO DAT litany of the everyday saint-mystic…simple genius! Her name should be on the smiley side of the board with stars : )

  2. Jeanne and Paige are my daughters. I don’t know how I got to be so blessed. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful thoughts. .
