Saints Anonymous

This is the day for celebrating saints most of us don't know, but ones in whose presence we will hopefully spend eternity.

Imagine the stories they could tell about their spans of time on earth!

I love that the Church sets aside today to honor these holy ones, these men and women who overcame all sorts of obstacles to give their hearts to Christ and to be forever with God.

May they pray for us today, and always. 

'Teach us, O Lord, and enable us to live the lives of saints...!'  (John Henry Cardinal Newman)

    1. Thank you, Daria! I tried to include several others, but couldn't get the hang of placing them in the post; I wanted to show people in various walks of life.

  2. You did a great job showing those various walks of life. God's goodness is so amazing. Hope you had a spirit filled holy day!

  3. Happy (belated) All Saint's Day, Nancy! I love that the Church sets aside this day too...The lives of the Saint's inspire me so much. You reflect their loveliness here:) I hope your All Soul's Day was prayerful and peaceful. God bless!

  4. Yes, we would love to hear all their stories!
    I love Mother Angelica's admonition, "We are all called to be saints..don't miss the opportunity!" The world is full of little hidden saints who (unobserved) follow in the footsteps of those gone on ahead. One day we shall know them. Beautiful post,Nancy.
    bless you xx

    1. Thank you, Tiffany and Trish! May God bless you, too!!
