The saints are our heroes in faith—role models for Catholics. They are ordinary people who practiced heroic virtue and can help us to do the same. Perhaps you can read a book about the saint you were named after or your Confirmation saint. You might also search an online index of patron saints to find one who interests you.
A few of my favorites are The Life of Faustina Kowalska, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, The Grunt Padre: Father Vincent Robert Capodanno, and The Living Wood: St. Helena and the Emperor Constantine.
