What can the saints of yesterday offer us today? They offer us timeless wisdom and inspiration, while bringing up closer to God. Sanctity surpasses time and is forever near us.
In her book, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle shares insights on how to strive to imitate the saints’ virtues, learn from their timeless wisdom, and ask for their intercessions.
An excerpt from her book:
“Ultimately, we should see the saints as models of sanctity for us to imitate, as well as tremendous intercessors, helping us when we invoke them. We should indeed seek out saints, who will surely help lead us to God, assisting us along the way.
St. Dominic reassured his brothers as he was dying: ‘Do not weep, for I shall be more useful to you after my death, and I will shall help you then more effectively than during my life.’ ”
