Everyday saints
In difficult moments in history, Pope Francis said, we hear it said that “our country
needs heroes – and this is true, this is right.” But, he asked, “what does the
Church need today? It needs witnesses, martyrs”:
“These are the witnesses, that is, the saints, the saints of everyday, of ordinary life,
but life [lived with] consistency; and also the witness ‘to the end,’ even to death.
These are the life blood of the Church; these are the ones that carry the Church
forward, the witnesses, who attest that Jesus is Risen, that Jesus is alive, and they
bear witness through the consistency of their life, with the Holy Spirit they have
received as a gift.” Pope Francis
