…the inspiration of the Saints, their lives, their stories, their miracles. Ordinary people with extraordinary souls… they walked this earth just like you and me… however they walked in pure union with Christ and thus miracles happened… That is pure inspiration! Some were born with the knowing and seemed to walk in Union with Christ from the first moments like Padre Pio… Others started out sinners and lived a wild life until God took a hold and the fire of the Holy Spirit filled every space… that gives me hope. And then we have words of inspiration from St. Catherine of Siena that were repeated often by our newest Saint Pope John Paul II “Do not be afraid to be the Saints of the new millennium, become who you are and you will set the whole world on fire” that brings me joy…. May we all be inspired to walk in Union with Christ and truly be His hands on this earth, His ears on this earth, His arms and His feet on this earth.
One of my favorite books on the miracles of the Saints is “Mystics and Miracles… True Stories of Lives Touched by God” by Bert Ghezzi.
