Saints of the Sidelines

"St. Patrick, St. Francis and St. Teresa… Every year, we commemorate these giants of our Catholic faith on All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1. Yet there are equally amazing but lesser-known saints and holy men and women on the path to sainthood who represent the rich diversity of the Communion of Saints, of which we are also members. 

I’ve always loved discovering these men and women because they often feel more relatable, more human, and less divine. Digging deeper into their stories makes me realize that they were just doing the best they could serving God in their humble lives. I may never become a Doctor of the Church or a martyr, but humbly serving God is definitely something I can aspire to."
