The saints are our heroes in faith, ordinary men and women who practiced extraordinary virtue. I love that there is such a vast variety of holy men and women who have lived in every part of the world and come from so many different walks of life. There are nuns, priests, housewives, soldiers, kings, queens, peasants, shepherds, and slaves. Some saints were very poor and faced incredibly difficult circumstances. Others were wealthy and lived carefree lives but were generous in serving the poor. No matter what your circumstances in life, you can find a saint who can inspire you.
