The saints help us see how to live out the Gospel. In the saints, we have concrete examples of followers of Christ who took Him at His Word and pursued the path which He laid out for them to follow. For example, Jesus told us that, "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." The saints know that following Jesus can be difficult. The path is not easy. It involves putting others ahead of ourselves and suffering. Today's saint shows us that this indeed the path that one must follow in order to answer the call God places on your life.
