Morning of Reflection: “Rather Ordinary Saints”

November 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Saints are often viewed as extraordinary people of unattainable holiness. We often grieve our inability to match their devotion to God. We put them on pedestals and marvel at their holiness from afar. As a result, we convince ourselves that their holiness and their intimacy with God are well out of range of our meager reach. Spoiler alert! The saints of the Church usually came from very ordinary backgrounds, not unlike ourselves. Their lives were often rooted in the drab, dull, drudgery of life. During this session, we will study the lives of a few saints and learn how their ordinariness gave birth to their holiness.
