Saints Today

We have a cloud of witnesses in the lives of the saints.  They may interceed on our behalf as we call out to God to increase our faith and resolve to follow him.  Their focus on the Eucharist during their lives is a help to us as we Reclaim Sunday to radiate the centrality of Jesus' message: he has come to save and redeem sinners.  While future study could advance in a  deeper knowledge of the effects of conversion in the lives of the saints, we accept they were opened to God's grace.
