Faces of Modern Day Saints

"Ask Jesus to make you a saint.
After all, only He can do that.
Go to confession regularly and to Communion as often as you can,"
- St. Dominic Savio

From rosaryfilms — April 26, 2007 — The Faces of Modern Day Saints in the Roman Catholic Church. Photographs and pictures of saints, beati, and holy people of the past 200 years; most are actual photographs. Includes St. Gemma Galgani, St. Bernadette, St. Maria Goretti, St. John Neumann, Padre Pio, Edith Stein, St. Peter Julian Eymard, St. Frances Cabrini, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. John Bosco, St. Dominic Savio, and many, many more. The Saints aren't just about ancient history, but were living, breathing people just like us. They each struggled with challenges and difficulties of their own time and place, but each have experiences and make choices that are relevant to us today. This is a great introduction to some modern saints, and will certainly challenge us with examples of holiness in the modern world.
