I've always had a special place in my heart for St. Therese de Lisieux. When I was a little girl....I used to gaze up at the stained glass window of her in church. My eyes would then gaze over and look to her statue. I knew there must have been something special about her because the church honored her in a big way. I have learned over the years.... that her little ways were a means of showing great love and we can show love in that same way. What an inspiration she is.
Universally... we are all called to be holy. Sainthood is not only reserved for those that the church has deemed to be saints. Our church has made these people saints for imitation and their intercession. In our day to day life..... we too are all called to be saints. We may not be recognized by the church in the same way but it's the way to get to heaven. In studying the life of St. Augustine.... we can see that every saint has a past and every sinner has a future!
Here's some pictures of future saints in the making!
