NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

 

REMEMBERING the SAINTS and our LOVED ONES

The month of November is dedicated to remembering the saints and our deceased family members and friends. As you seek to live out your own call to holiness, the Marriage and Family Life Office encourages you to look for inspiration and strength in reflecting on the lives of those powerful men and women of faith who lived Gospel lives.

“The life of holiness… constitutes the simplest and most attractive way to perceive at once the beauty of truth, the liberating force of God’s love, and the value of unconditional fidelity to all the demands of the Lord’s law, even in the most difficult situations. For this reason, the Church… has always invited believers to seek and to find in the saints… the model, the strength, and the joy needed to live a live in accordance with God’s commandments and the Beatitudes of the Gospel.”

Pope John Paul II, Veritatis Splendor, No. 107.2
