Saints: Gospel Artists
It’s an idea inspired by Pope John Paul II. “Be the saints of the new millennium,” he told us. But before we can be saints, we need to know the saints. And so, it began: a pilgrimage through Germany and Italy with almost 100 Canadian university students, with visits in the towns, homes, and places of prayer of some of the saints of the Catholic Church. And the more we travelled, the more clear the picture became – there is a resemblance between holy lives lived and lives living for the holy.
