What is a Saint?
What is a Saint? Better yet, we can ask, “Who can be a Saint?” We know that the answer is each and every one of us.
Yes, we do have canonized saints in the Catholic Church. They are recognized in this special way to be an example of faith for everyone.
The challenge for us as we think about our traditional Feast of All Saints on November 1st is to remember that we are challenged by their example to live lives of faith and commitment ourselves.
As we strive for sainthood in our own lives, we thank God for these witnesses from the past. They truly are “holy ones” that we can imitate in so many ways through prayer and service in the name of Jesus Christ.
And let us continue to pray for one another.
