All Catholics are called to a life of holiness — to be saints! But we’re all different people, and sanctity looks different in every saint. St. Thomas Aquinas didn’t write Story of a Soul. St. Therese of Lisieux didn’t serve the poorest of the poor in India. Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) didn’t give her life to spare her daughter’s (she didn’t have any daughters). St. Gianna Molla didn’t sit for long hours in the confessional hearing penitents. And St. John Vianney didn’t learn Latin well enough to write the Summa Theologica. But they’re all saints. They all had a deep love for Christ and His Bride, the Church.
Where is God calling you?
Here is a place to share stories of God’s call and highlight the different ways He leads us to Him.
