Today, June 22nd the Catholic Church honors two saints: Thomas More and John Fisher.
These friends lived in England in the late 15th and early 16th century.
One was a well-known layman and politician, the other a well-known priest and bishop.
Two years ago, I was introduced to a saint in an unexpected way.
This modern-day saint has a rich and inspirational story.
Today, March 19th is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

The saints are one of the most beautiful aspects of the Catholic Faith.
We connect to different saints for different reasons.
